Cheap eye exam in Richmond Hill is critically important to prevent some common eye diseases from causing permanent vision loss or blindness.


During an eye exam, Dr. Michael Farr will ask you questions about any symptoms or issues you are experiencing, medications your are currently taking, any blurry vision, your work environment, and your overall health. Family history and previous eye or vision conditions will also be discussed during this part of the examination. Dr. Farr will consider this information when determining any treatments or recommendations.

Vision Testing

Regular vision testing and evaluations ensure that you always have the clearest vision possible. In our cheap eye exam in Richmond Hill, optometrist provides regular vision acuity test as part of a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Farr will measure how each eye is seeing by using a wall eye chart and a reading eye chart. The results of these tests are portrayed as a fraction, with 20/20 being the standard for normal distance and reading vision. Depending on the results of your vision test, Dr. Farr as well as our other doctors may prescribe corrective glasses, contacts, or eye exercises.


At Eye Wink our cheap eye exam in Richmond Hill is done for:

  • To monitor an eye problem, such as diabetic retinopathy, or to find out if a treatment is working.
  • To determine if you need glasses or contact lenses to improve your vision.
  • After an injury to the eye, to check if your sight was affected.

If you wear glasses or contact lenses, bring them with you for the cheap eye exam in Richmond Hill, since the tests cannot be properly performed without them. If you have a copy of your current eyeglass prescription, bring it with you as well.


Vision tests check many different functions of the eye. Dr. Farr will let you know if your eyesight is normal or if it is better or worse than normal. He may also be able to tell you why you have a vision problem.

Eye Function Testing

In addition to vision testing, an eye exam in our Richmond Hill office includes testing eye functionality. Our optometrist performs several tests to evaluate depth perception, color vision, eye muscle capabilities, peripheral vision, and responsiveness to light. Several other simple tests are completed to determine whether the eyes are focusing, moving, and working together properly. The test results enable Dr. M. Farr to diagnose any underlying conditions that may be impairing the eyes ability to focus or work together.

Eye Health

As part of a comprehensive eye exam, our Richmond Hill optometrist examines the overall health of the eye through a visual examination and tonometry. Dr. Michael Farr evaluates eye health by visually inspecting the eye and eyelids using magnification and a bright light. To examine the internal structures of the eye, we may dilate the pupils. Increased eye pressure may be an indicator of glaucoma, so we utilize tonometry to measure eye pressure. After completing these short tests, Dr. Farr reviews the results and discusses any necessary treatment options with you.
