How We Use Our Vision

A functional vision assessment is key to determining how effectively one uses their visual system to communicate with the brain

In other words, an individual may have 20/20 vision, but still say they have trouble seeing.

People at any age, from children to seniors, may notice that their vision is not quite right, but have been told they do not have any eye disease.

  • Comprehensive health assessment
  • Environmental/lifestyle factors

Testing & Solutions

A break-through tool in optometry, RightEye is a fast, non-invasive, accurate, and versatile test that utilizes eye-tracking technology to uncover issues that a traditional eye exam may not.

RightEye can be utilized for:

  • Functional Vision

  • Sports Vision

NeuroTracker is a state-of-the-art technology designed at the University of Montreal using over 20 years of neuroscience research to exercise speed processing in individuals with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and learning difficulties to improving reaction time in drivers and athletes. Vision therapy can also aid in binocular and perceptual development in children with learning difficulties, improving reading skills and sports vision.

ChromaGen lenses are a patented product which were originally developed for individuals experiencing colour vision deficiency. They have since been shown to be beneficial for those with reading difficulties, including dyslexia.

Shaw Lenses take into consideration how the eyes work and move together as it balances image sizes. This is especially helpful in people with a weaker or lazy eye as it solves many distortion problems.  As a result, many patients report better vision comfort and fewer headaches.

Certain vitamin, mineral, diet and exercise, and molecular deficiencies, can lead to issues in functional vision. Changes can make a huge difference in how we process information that we see.

Overuse of digital media can cause many problems with functional vision from dry eyes to sleep issues which affects our quality of vision. These lenses help prevent the damage that digital media has on our eyes.
