How is this service performed?

There are several different professionals who provide eye care services at Horizon’s facilities. Horizon’s ophthalmologists, optometrists, orthoptists, and opticians care for patients with a wide range of eye problems from common complaints to more unusual conditions or emergencies.

How do I access this service?

If you are concerned about the condition of your eyes, please talk with your family physician or primary health care provider. You may then be referred to our services for eye exams, diagnostic testing, surgeries and procedures.

How do I prepare for this service?

You may need to plan for someone to drive you home after your appointment depending on your eye exam or procedure. No preparation is required. You may wish to make a list of what you want to discuss with our specialists. Many patients find it helpful to write a list of their concerns since writing these concerns ensures they don’t forget anything.
