Comprehensive Eye Exams in Saskatoon

See Things Our Way

At Vista Eyecare, we’re committed to providing a comprehensive experience for your entire family. To do this, we use specialized technology to test your vision and thoroughly examine your eyes.

It’s no secret that many eye issues can develop without showing early symptoms. Fortunately, we can detect eye disease even before you know there is a problem and provide you with tailored solutions.

When To Visit Vista Eyecare

Regular eye exams can be the difference between healthy vision and compromised eyesight. The Canadian Association of Optometrists has outlined a schedule for adult and senior eye exams:


should receive an eye exam every 2 to 3 years


should receive an eye exam at least once every 2 years


> 65
should receive an eye exam once every year

Everyone’s eye health needs are different, so your optometrist may recommend a custom schedule for you.

What We Look For

Our testing process and technology can diagnose eye conditions even before you notice a problem. We check for eye diseases like:

  • Glaucoma

  • Age-related macular degeneration

  • Cataract

  • Retinal tear and detachment

  • Dry eye syndrome

  • Digital eye strain

Our Comprehensive Process

When you walk into our office, relax and let us guide you through our comprehensive eye exam process.

Case History

Let’s get to know your story! Many eye conditions are hereditary, so if you have family members with eye problems, we want to hear about it. We also need to know if you have medical conditions that could affect your eyes, like diabetes. Bring a list of your medications if you can, along with your current glasses and contact lenses.

Visual Acuity Testing

This test measures your ability to see objects of different sizes at a distance and near. This helps us determine if your eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions need to be changed and detect any red flags or if you might have an eye health problem. If you can picture the classic eye chart, then you’re familiar with a visual acuity test.

Visual Field Test

Peripheral vision loss can be an early sign of some eye diseases, like glaucoma. We use the Humphrey Visual Field Analyzer to ensure your peripheral vision is working as it should. It’s a non-invasive test that utilizes soft flashing lights to identify areas of vision loss.

Digital Retinal Imaging

We use the Optos California Ultra-Widefield29 and Canon CR-1 digital retinal cameras to obtain crystal clear images of your retina. These pictures help us identify abnormalities at the back of your eye. Digital retinal imaging is a non-invasive test that helps us diagnose eye diseases early.

Your Ocular Health Review

The last stage of an eye exam is all about communication. We’ll let you know if you need any additional testing and if your prescription has changed. We’ll also happily help you find a new pair of glasses or contact lenses.
