For adults, we recommend an eye exam once every year to two years. Regular examinations can help identify changes in vision and detect for early signs of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and more!
For seniors, we recommend an eye exam once every year. As we age our body’s begin to change and our eyes are no exception to that! With aging, fine print may become more difficult to read or colours seem a bit dull. Although most changes are normal, some could be a sign of underlying issues that need further attention by an ophthalmologist.
Eye Exam - Child(0-18)
For children, we recommend an eye exam once a year. Early age eye examinations can help in detection of any eye diseases and poor eyesight. Signs of poor eyesight in children can go unnoticed which leads to uncorrected vision could lead to permanent damage. If children are in school, it could lead to their learning being affected.
Certain conditions of the body can have an affect on vision and eye health. In general, the eye exams are fairly regular but the optometrist makes sure to look out for signs and symptoms of changing eye health. As per their recommendation, eye exams should be conducted every 6 months to one year.
If you are experiencing blurred vision in between your regular eye exams or you are looking to confirm your prescription before getting contacts, vision testing is a convenient way to get this done. A vision exam does not contain a health check, nor does it contain a health check but it is a good refresher and it is conducted by a licensed optician.
Glasses may not be for everyone or everything. If you’re looking to wear contact lenses for convenience, fashion, or sports we provide a contact lens fitting. It is vital to get fitted for your contact lenses as it will ensure optimal comfort, safety, and vision. Our licensed optician will guide you through how to properly insert, remove, and take care of your contacts and will advise you on which product is the best for your eye shape and condition.
