An eye examination does not only mean the checking of degree for your glasses. At I-Vision Optometrist, an eye examination includes ocular refraction (checking of degree), screening of binocular status, front and back eye health assessment and lastly, checking of intra-ocular pressure. This full eye examination will allow patients to walk away with a better understanding of their eye health, and detect any possible eye problems as early as possible.
