Adult & Senior Comprehensive Eye Care
Not only do we evaluate and measure the necessary prescription for eyewear. But we also check to ensure both eyes team together equally. In many cases, poor eye teaming can cause headaches, eye strain, and tired eyes.
We carefully examine the eyes to ensure optimal eye health. This is especially important for those with high myopia and a family history of eye problems, since many eye diseases and conditions are asymptomatic in the early stages and can only be detected during an eye examination with an optometrist.
How often should I get my eyes checked?
We recommend an eye exam every 1-2 years to check the vision and the health of the eyes, just like a routine physical examination with your family doctor.
Adults over the age of 65 are advised to have a routine eye examination every year. Many conditions including glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration become more prevalent with increasing age. Early detection and prevention are the key to managing these conditions before they cause serious damage and irreversible vision loss.
We recommend their first eye exam when they are 6 months old, 3 years old and then yearly to make sure their visual system is developing properly.
Individuals with diabetes should be examined routinely on a yearly basis to screen for diabetic retinopathy. Poorly controlled blood sugar damages the small blood vessels in the body, which can be seen directly in an eye exam.
Children under age 20, adults over age 64, and anyone with diabetes is covered for one comprehensive eye examination every year with a valid OHIP card.
