Our Eyes on Yours

Your ocular health can change over time, so you need a professional’s support and regular eye exams. Some eye conditions and diseases have a reliable treatment plan if we work together to catch it early enough!

Our Process

We believe in total transparency and communication. Our optometrists work with you to take charge of your eye health.

Our fundus camera grants us a wide-angle view into the smallest corners of your eyes so we can spot minor problems before they grow. Even if eye disease doesn’t seem to have a clear and single cause, like dry eye, we can quickly pinpoint underlying factors and arrange treatments that are right for you!

We conduct a thorough examination of your retina and all sensitive tissues we can find. We look for even the smallest signs of eye disease so we can provide you with accurate information and thorough treatment plans.

Adults

The Canadian Association of Optometry recommends regular eye exams for adults (at least once every 2 years), even if your eyes feel fine. For that reason, we recommend visiting us for a comprehensive exam every year.

While you’re in our care, we look for critical changes, since around the age of 40, adults experience increased risk for developing eye disease.

Patients with diabetes need more frequent and involved eye exams and treatment plans, which we’re well equipped to help with.

As you age, you are at a higher risk of developing serious eye conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, or age-related macular degeneration. Adults over 65 should have their eyes examined annually.

Our optometrists have the experience and knowledge you can trust to preserve your vision well into the future. We’re also here to talk, so please reach out if you’d like more information and support.

The Difference in a Comprehensive Exam

Your bodily health is intertwined with the health of your eyes, and we account for that. We discuss your medical history, your current medications, your ocular and family history, and even your diet and lifestyle. These are all factors we consider before we begin testing and inspecting your eyes.

When we’ve assessed your ocular health, we’ll test for any corrective needs you have so you can better enjoy the clarity and colour of the world around you!

Visual acuity testing gives us the chance to understand how well you see at varying distances. Then, if we find the need for a stronger prescription, we’ll use the best tools available to get you clearer vision. From our phoropter, tonometer, retinal imaging, and slit-lamps to more specialized tests—our equipment and expertise are what make these exams comprehensive.

For more information, please contact us, and we’ll answer any questions we can.

Glaucoma often goes hand-in-hand with high intraocular pressure (IOP), damaging the optic nerve as a result. But sometimes damage develops without elevated IOP.

More common types of glaucoma are a gradual process with almost no noticeable symptoms. Once you notice the symptoms of glaucoma, it’s too late, and some permanent vision loss has already occured. Your best bet is prevention, and we’ve trained to look for the earliest opportunities for that.

Your eye’s natural lens is made of proteins and water. As we age, the proteins restructure, resulting in an increasingly cloudy and opaque lens. We call groups of these opaque proteins a cataract, and it affects a great many people. Cataracts can be treated with a safe and effective surgery.

The macula is a key area of your eye’s retina, and it’s responsible for detailed central vision. With age, the macula can become clouded or scarred by damaged blood vessels.

Without proper stimulation and function, macular cells start to break down. The condition is known as age-related macular degeneration or AMD. Macular cells don’t regrow when they break down in this way, so vision loss tends to be permanent. Although there are 2 types of AMD, it most commonly progresses with minimal symptoms, meaning regular, thorough eye examinations are your best protection.
