Whether you are looking for complete vision and eye health evaluations or an eye exam in Barrie, we can accommodate all your requests. The first part of Barrie Vision Centre's vision test involves the use of lenses to determine the best prescription and vision possible for you. Even if you have 20/20 vision, that doesn't mean you have a healthy eye. Our diagnostic tests will help evaluate the health of your eyes, as well as the risk factors for change in the future. Meanwhile, further testing (in case needed) for preventative eye care will be determined and explained. After the analysis is completed, we will recommend eyewear that meets your needs. Specific tests involved are:
Binocular vision evaluation (how the two eyes work together)
Complete medical and ocular history analysis
Eye pressure evaluation
Final diagnosis, recommendation, and prescription
Internal and external ocular examination with pupil dilation if required (for the detection of eye disease and signs of possible systemic disease)
Optos retinal imaging
Refraction (precise prescription determination)
Visual acuity (sight testing)

You can also depend on our eye care centre for additional testing such as:
Visual Field Measurements and Assessments
Visual field measurement and assessment is used to test and monitor peripheral vision, and it provides the doctor very valuable information about the neurological function of the retina, optic nerve, and brain. It is a sophisticated, computerized test that plots out and analyzes your side vision, and is helpful to screen for and monitor certain eye diseases such as glaucoma.
Advanced/Thorough Glaucoma Screenings
Glaucoma is a complex disease and several diagnostic tests are necessary to determine somebody's risk level for developing glaucoma or if they indeed have glaucoma. It involves a case history, ocular evaluation with a slit lamp, eye pressure measurement, ocular evaluation with dilation of the pupils to evaluate the optic nerve head, measurement of the thickness of the cornea, and visual field evaluation. If need be, further evaluation can be done with the HRT III (the Heidelberg Retinal Tomograph II.)
The Heidelberg Retinal Tomograph III uses scanning laser technology to produce a three-dimensional image of the optic nerve head. A more precise evaluation of the nerve, the part of the eye affected by glaucoma, is possible here. We can learn the present nerve status and changes from previous measurements. And hence, it has become an important tool for the diagnosis and management of glaucoma.
Contact Lens Medical Management
It involves a group of tests used to determine your eye's ability to wear contacts or to evaluate the performance of your current contact lenses and your eye's ability to continue wearing the same. Consultation to discuss the newest contact lens options is possible. For new wearers, one-on-one guidance in the care and handling of your contact lenses is a part of successful contact lens wear. We strive to provide a completely healthy and enjoyable contact lens experience.
Guaranteed Contact Lens Success Program
We provide contact lens expertise, thorough professional care, quality lens products, and an overall enjoyable contact lens experience. If for any reason, a patient is unhappy within 90 days of the contact lens fitting, they are entitled to a credit refund of the lens investment.
Digital Retinal Imaging/Fundus Photography
The pictures are used to document the optic nerve, blood vessels, retina, and macula. The photographs are necessary for the diagnosis, documentation, and comparison of certain eye conditions. Fundus photography is a specialized form of medical imaging, and we use the Optomap imaging system. Only two offices have this in Barrie. It will take an image up to 80% of your eye, compared to just 35% for the standard fundus photos.
Pachymetry/Corneal Thickness Measurement
This test is performed to measure the thickness of the cornea and has become a standard of eye care concerning the screening for glaucoma. As a thin cornea is at greater risk of developing glaucoma, true eye pressure values are sometimes underestimated or overestimated depending on the thickness of your cornea. Therefore, eye pressure is not a precise measurement unless your cornea thickness is measured correctly. The test is also useful to monitor some diseases which affect the thickness of your cornea, or to determine if someone is a candidate for laser vision correction.
No-obligation Laser Vision Correction Consultations
Imagine that you don't have to reach for your eyeglasses or fumble around for the alarm clock every morning! Clear vision without glasses has become a reality for many, and you can be the next one.
Are you wondering whether laser treatment is the right choice for you? The only way to be certain is to have an eye examination. If eye care professionals determine that your eyes are healthy and normal, and your prescription is stable, we can proceed. However, there are many questions and concerns that you may have before undergoing such surgery and our doctors are here for you. We send you to a laser facility that performs the most advanced laser procedures and can co-manage the pre- and post-operative care here in Barrie.
