    -In Hamilton?


    I'm looking for an eye place/eye doctor that tests not just your sight but also the health of your eyes etc?


    Can someone please recommend me a good place? I'm in desperate need.

    (nothing up the mountain if possible)

    Any eye doctor/eye place that tests the health of your eyes.


    -Thank you!

    The computerized imaging component is offered by doctors for a fee. That helps the eye doctors look at the condition of various parts of the eyes.
    Not sure which doctor will handle your eyes for a check. Sounds like a referral?
    Unless you have a preexisting eye condition and you're between 18 and 65, you will have to pay out of pocket for an eye test/examination-OHIP does not cover eye exams unless one is those two age ranges or someone between 18-65 has an existing eye condition (OHIP will cover the regular eye test, not the Optomap portion). You might wish to find out which eye doctor in your area is offering Optomap imaging-that is a separate fee from the regular eye testing fee.

    You're looking at about $130. I understand there may be eye doctors doing $85 eye exams but you have to decide what's important to you.

    I don't know it if it's extra because usually when you go to an eye doctor and pay(if it's out of pocket) then it's all included in the price? or maybe that's just how my previous eye place did it, my previous eye place did not tell me it was extra, but I didn't mind/or care about the price becuase them checking my eye health is important to me which is why now I'm looking specifically at places that do this as well as checking sight.


    Don't think a referral is necessary..shouldn't be, last place I went they just took a photo of my eye/inside of my eye and they told me if it was healthy etc etc, informed me about eye diseases and what they might look like if I had any, any spots on my eyes what they mean, if normal etc etc../that I really liked! makes me wonder why all places don't offer this? to me that's very important, or if it is separate why don't they bring it up at your appointment? so you can make a choice to get it? because I have never heard of them doing this until my last place did it without me asking..but is really informative and something I would like to continue getting done in addition to getting my sight checked.

    Is that what it's called Optomap imaging? I've heard different terms.
    That's what I'm trying to find out, which places in my area have them, not sure how to find that out...I don't even know all of the eye doctors in my city :/
    I doubt a Hakim Optical would offer this? I have no idea how and where to start searching..
    was hoping if someone was here from Hamilton and has their eyes checked and get's the imaging thing done I could go there.
    I just want to go to somehwer where I can get it done, no matter the cost.

    http://www.collegeoptom.on.ca/public/

    Under Public is the Find an Optometrist option.

    Yellow Pages listings. Plenty of medical arts buildings along Queenston Rd.

    If the local Hakim Optical has an optometrist on site (private practice), then you can make an appt. with him/her. Chances are the eye doctor may have more than one office (like the Costco eye doctors) so don't expect to have all days in the week to choose from for an appointment-more likely there will be certain days or afternoons available (I say this as a local eyewear store in town seems to have a different optometrist after every two years (not sure if there are not enough clients or some other issue). Or find an eye clinic. Malls have eye doctors.

    Cool-the Optomap website seems to have a practice search for doctors using the imaging program. http://www.optomap.com/
