Nelms Opticians also offers visual field testing to detect and diagnose abnormalities in your central, side (or peripheral) view. It’s often asked for on driving tests to make sure your field of vision is accurate. The field analyzer will print out a detailed copy of your visual field, which will be compared to future testing done between three and 12 months, depending upon your diagnosis.
Please call to make an appointment with one of our on-site Peterborough Independent Optometrists.
If you’re under 20 or over 65 and have a current Ontario Health Insurance card, your eye exam is covered yearly by this insurance. As these are the years that can have the most changes in sight, it’s highly recommended that you have this yearly exam. For ages 20-64, you’ll need to pay for your eye exam, which your benefit plan may cover. Most people in this age range have their eyes tested every two years. We also direct bill to most health care plans.
Should you experience any problems with your eyes at any time, don’t wait, but rather call us to see if investigation is required, and we can direct you to the appropriate person for help. For any emergency, please visit us or call to make an appointment.
