We’ve invested in i.Terminal™ by Zeiss for our practice. This advanced technology creates an entirely new experience for patients when selecting frames and lenses. It also provides the most accurate fitting possible, so you can enjoy the maximum performance from your frames and lenses.
The i.Terminal™ uses a precision digital camera and a computerized measuring system. It photographs you wearing your chosen frames and then completes all the necessary measurements with exacting accuracy. You can view yourself in different frames, compare various lens enhancements, and be confident that you have selected the best combination of products for your needs.
The i.Terminal™ includes an enhanced mirror so patients with stronger prescriptions can clearly see how their chosen frames will look when worn and can compare multiple frames side-by-side. If you’re considering a premium lens upgrade you will be able to see how that lens will look and perform.
If you wear progressive lenses, the i.Terminal™ can ensure you get the maximum benefit from your lenses. While modern progressive lenses offer unsurpassed performance, that performance is limited by the accuracy of fitting. Even small errors in fitting measurements can result in up to 25% reduction in viewing zone alignment and lens performance. i.Terminal™ delivers consistent precise measurements, ensuring you get the best possible experience from your lenses.
Eye examinations for contact lens wearers include all of the steps described in the Eye Examination section. If you are interested in wearing contact lenses, or having your current contact lenses evaluated, please mention it when booking your routine eye exam.
If you are considering contact lenses for the first time, we evaluate whether contact lenses are appropriate for your optical prescription, ocular health, and lifestyle. We may perform corneal topography, which maps out the front surface of the eye for accurate lens fitting.
Our professional contact lens fitting includes an evaluation, lens fitting, insertion, removal and cleaning training, and follow-up visits for a full year. For contact lens wearers, we require an annual contact lens check-up to ensure stable ocular health and visual acuity.
The cornea of the eye takes approximately 80% of its oxygen directly from the air; contact lenses act as a barrier to oxygen which can affect the integrity and health of the cornea. For that reason, we feel a strong responsibility to check the lenses we prescribe to ensure they are well suited to your eyes.
Laser eye surgery, also known as refractive laser surgery, or laser vision correction, uses computer-assisted lasers to improve vision by reshaping the cornea. Horizon Laser Vision Center performs these surgical procedures in Saskatoon and Regina using the safest, most innovative technology.
Laser eye surgery is suitable for patients who have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism. The surgery takes five to ten minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis.
Immediately after surgery, your vision may be hazy, blurry, or fluctuate. In most cases, these effects disappear after a few weeks. The surgery does not necessarily eliminate the need of glasses, or contact lenses, but it minimizes your dependency on them. For instance, if you are over 40 and are experiencing presbyopia, you will still need reading glasses after the surgery.
If refractive laser eye surgery interests you, please make an appointment] to discuss this with Doctor Robison or Doctor Lukenchuk. We will assess your ocular eye health and refraction and correlate this to your lifestyle and visual expectations. If you are a good candidate for the surgery, we will refer you to an ophthalmologist (eye surgeon).
Advanced Orthokeratology (AOK) is a particular form of vision treatment involving the prescription of contact lenses worn over-night. The lenses reshape the patient's eye to allow the patient to see well without glasses, or contact lenses during the day. This is much the same way retainers are used to reshape teeth. Dr. Robinson has taken specialized training in order to provide this service.
If AOK interests you, please make an appointment to discuss your candidacy.
