Comprehensive Eye Exams in Grand Falls-Windsor and Lewisporte

Just as you schedule regular visits for your family at the dentist’s office, you should schedule regular eye exams. In the Grand Falls-Windsor and Lewisporte areas, it’s easy to schedule eye exams at Howlett Optical. Don’t wait until you hear from your child’s teacher that he or she seems to be struggling to see the whiteboard or screen at the front of the classroom or until you start experiencing end-of-day headaches from straining to focus on your computer screen. Regular eye exams should be part of your wellness and preventive care routine whether you’re experiencing eye problems or not. Why? Because many eye problems don’t show obvious symptoms at the earliest stages, your eye exam can catch problems when they are easiest to treat.

At Howlett Optical, we perform thorough eye exams that include far more than reading the eye chart! Here’s what we’ll do during your visit with our optometrists:

  • Medical history review

  • Visual acuity exam (reading the eye chart)

  • Ocular motility exam (checking the motion, alignment and muscles of the eyes)

  • Refraction test (checking for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia)

  • Eye pressure measurement (checking for glaucoma)

  • Eye health exam (includes examination of the eyelid and cornea, checking for cataracts and dilation of your eye to examine the retina and optic nerve)

Depending on your medical history and overall health and wellness, we may use additional tests, including retinal imaging, to see and document changes in your eyes. Your eye exam is also a good time for you to talk about any concerns or problems you have; if, for instance, you are experiencing eye strain at the end of your workday or want to switch to contacts or progressive lenses, your Howlett Optical optometrist can suggest solutions to help you see more clearly and easily.
