Seeing the Full Picture
Your eyes deserve high-quality care that goes beyond checking your prescription. At Empress Eye Clinic, we’re going to look at the entire picture of your eye health to ensure we’re providing you with a premium experience.
All adults should have their eyes examined regularly to establish their baseline, monitor their eye health, and prevent any changes.
The Empress Process
Your eye exam does more than check to see what lens prescription you have—although it does that too!
Eye exams at Empress are designed with your eye health in mind. We’re going to perform several noninvasive tests using state-of-the-art technology that will help us monitor your ocular health. This allows us to check for any changes over time and diagnose any issues as early as possible.
We’re also going to ask you about yourself. Knowing if you have health conditions, if you’re taking certain medications, or if you have a family history of eye disease will allow us to provide you with the best care possible.
You won’t ever feel rushed here at Empress Eye Clinic. We value the importance of taking our time and responding to all of your questions.
Your Exam Schedule
The frequency of your eye exams depends on your age and any preexisting conditions you may have, like diabetes. If you have been diagnosed with an eye disease, you should follow the schedule recommended by your optometrist.
The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends the following eye exam schedule for adults:
- Age 20–39: Every 2–3 years
- Age 40–64: Every 2 years
- Age 65+: Annually
Caring For Your Eyes
Our experts are here to care for your eyes—all you have to do is come in for your exam. Afterward, we invite you to explore our fashionable eyewear gallery to find your perfect prescription glasses, if you need them.
We want to offer you a lifetime of eye care. Book your exam to see what sets us apart.

Wow, what a great experience! I was able to book a same-day appointment after calling multiple optometrists in the area with an eye emergency. Both Dr.Heshmati and Dr.Habib took their time with me – it didn’t feel rushed at all, and they always ensured I was comfortable and were diligent in getting to the solution of my issue! Not only were the doctors exceptional, but the front desk staff went above and beyond to ensure I had my following appointments booked and that I had all my questions answered! All in all, fantastic experience. I highly recommend this location and wish other practices held to their standard.
Everyone I interacted with was very friendly, respectful, and attentive. From the person who did the eye tests to the person who helped with the glasses.
The doctor was also great. He didn’t rush and took his time explaining his observations and the next steps. He truly cares. As a healthcare professional myself, I know when I see exemplary patient care.
Thank you for the awesome service
I’ve never had an eye appointment before so I didn’t know what to expect. The staff was absolutely wonderful! Dr Heshmati was so kind and thorough and knowledgeable…he explained everything he was going to do so well and helped me with my prescription.
I had help from a wonderful lady whose name I didn’t catch…she helped me pick out the perfect frames for my new glasses and was so patient and helpful.
The staff was so friendly and approachable. I had a great experience and I highly recommend this clinic to anyone needing their eyes checked!
I wish I knew this eye clinic earlier! The eye exam was very thorough and Dr. Habib explained in detail about our testing results. The clinic has advanced machine to detect eye problems that are not normally checked. The front desk assistant was very professional as well and helped us finding eye glasses. Clinic is super clean!
