Family First, Friendly, Senior Eye Exams & Care

“Exceptional experience with Dr. Pati and his helpful/friendly staff. The contact lenses suggested to me (Dailies Total 1) are incredibly comfortable. My father picked up a pair of sunglasses from their selection at a great price. The team at Real Eyes were able to fit my mother in with an appointment and help her find a pair of designer frames within a week. Overall: Great place to bring the family, excellent service, and knowledgeable staff.”

Senior eye exams

Our Comprehensive Senior Eye Exams Explained

Medical Services Plan (MSP) helps cover senior eye exams with a valid personal health number (PHN). We make your life easier by submitting your claim directly to your health care provider and supporting individual payments for patients without insurance coverage. 

  1. Patient History. You will be asked about your health history, including previous and current eye conditions with treatments, systemic conditions, family medical history, current medications, and known allergies.
  2. Comprehensive Testing. Your optometrist will measure visual acuity, eye muscle coordination and movements, binocularity, pupil function, and additional tests if needed.
  3. Refraction Assessment. We will assess for refractive errors — primarily myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), astigmatism and presbyopia. This helps to determine the patient’s prescription which will provide clear, comfortable vision for both distance and near. 
  4. Ocular Health Evaluation. An in-depth ocular health assessment will include eye dilation, speciality testing like visual fields, non-invasive imaging of the front and back of the eye, and corneal topography measurements.
  5. Patient Education. Our doctors take the time to ensure every patient understands all aspects of the eye exam, how their eyes work, any treatment options they need, and recommended maintenance tips with products to keep their eyes looking and feeling their best.
