Glaucoma Examinations

If you have a history of glaucoma it is important to maintain regular checks so that your optometrist can measure any changes and variables.  This examination is for glaucoma only so we will not be testing your vision.  As part of this exam, your optometrist will perform a Peripherial Visual Field Test, OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) and Digital Imaging - for only $145.


The optometrist will assess these results and do an internal check of your eyes, looking particularly at your optic discs and measure your Intra Ocular Pressures.

Please allow 45 minutes for this examination.

Laser Treatment Examinations

The optometrists at Canon Street can support the decision making process around laser vision corrective surgery.
We work with several laser vision clinics and complete pre and post operation checks on their behalf.
Laser vision corrective surgery is an alternative to glasses or contact lenses.  Most eye conditions can be treated with laser surgery but it is dependent on the current vision, rate of change and general health.

Pricing for laser treatments is on application. Please make an appointment with any of our optometrists to discuss this as a corrective option.

driving examination

A driving examination is only $30 and is a quick check only.  Canon Street Optometrists recommend a general examination every two years; so if it has been longer than this we will ask you to make an appointment for a general examination rather than simply a driving examination.  If it is less we will proceed with a driving examination. The optometrist will test your peripheral vision and acuities (how well you see).  If you pass these tests you will be given a certificate for your licence.  If you fail we will need to schedule you an appointment for a general examination to assess what improvement we can make to your vision with correction, e.g. glasses or contact lenses.
