According to an OHIP study, the average regular eye exam should take approx 26 min, and include over 20 diagnostic tests. Known for his comprehensive eye exams, Dr. Workman employs the latest technology in eye disease detection, and all adult eye exams include retinal imaging, which he evaluates with the patient.
Pink eye, embedded grit & retinal issues should be evaluated immediately by
Dr. Workman, and patients can usually be accommodated the same day.
We know how important it is for the little ones to be able to see clearly! As a father of young children, this is why Dr. Workman ensured kids' comfort (and ease for parents!) by providing a "Play Den" with toys, books and Leap Pads featuring educational games, and provides a full-scope eye exam specifically geared toward children. Kids do NOT need to know their alphabet in order to have an eye exam! If a parent notices a "lazy" eye (even from early childhood or as babies), please bring your little one in - the sooner it's treated, the better the results!
*Remember: Kids 19 & under are fully covered annually for eye exams!
Ever wondered if you're a candidate for LASIK? A thorough eye exam with Dr. Workman - including pachometry (a test which determines corneal thickness) - will indicate whether or not you are a candidate. Dr. Workman prepares a detailed report for the Opthalmologist, and assists in arrangements with a reputable Laser Centre (such as TLC, Bochner or Herzig). Dr. Workman also conveniently provides follow-up care for 12 months!
"Dr. Workman is an amazing doctor and a compassionate human being. My daughter has juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, and I was worried about her sight - and how quickly things can go bad. Without knowing us or her case history, his amazing staff said for us to bring her in right away. He answered all of my questions, and gave an exam like no other. My son was having headaches, and again I was fit in right away. Great information described in detail, and in KID terms as well. Very comfortable atmosphere. I would recommend him to as many people as I could. He loves what he does, and you can tell by how he treats his patients."
"Dr. Workman is well-equipped and knowledgeable, with a very courteous and caring manner. He takes the time to listen to his patients, and is realistic in his advice and guidance. I would recommend him to anyone of any age (and I do)."
"I moved to Barrie in January of this year therefore had to leave the office of Darryl Workman.
It saddens me that I must move but life throws curve balls and we learn to cope.
I am a visual artist that lives with autoimmune problems that can affect my eyes.
It was early on in my 17 years with Darryl I trusted this warm, caring and honest individual. He is a man I trust!
Sad to say goodbye but leave knowing he and his cheery staff will carry on taking care of his flock.
Thank you Darryl ."
Today was my first appointment with Dr. Darryl Workman. The whole experience was awesome - from the helpful, polite and professional staff to the expertise of Dr. Workman (who took the time to explain every single thing he did and how it relates to my vision), I HIGHLY recommend NDEC! I can't wait for my new glasses to come in!
