Comprehensive Eye Care from a Team You Can Trust

Regular eye exams are an essential part of preventative health care. Eye exams are not just important for determining your eyesight, but they are also crucial for checking the health and strength of your eyes and looking for signs of disease. As many eye diseases progress slowly or exhibit no early warning signs, regular eye exams can protect your vision.

How Often Should I Have an Eye Exam?

Generally, adults should have an eye exam every 1 to 3 years. For adults in good health who do not normally wear corrective lenses, and whose vision has remained relatively stable, the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends those between 20 and 40 years old undergo an eye exam every 2 to 3 years.

Adults over the age of 40 should have an eye exam every 1 to 2 years to keep an eye on common age-related vision problems, such as age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

Vision can change dramatically and the risk of disease and vision problems increases significantly with age. The CAO recommends those over 65 should undergo annual eye exams.

Additionally, adults of any age with health issues such as diabetes or high blood pressure should have their eyes examined annually as these conditions can significantly affect eye health.

What is Involved in an Eye Exam?

A comprehensive eye exam involves a series of tests to check your visual acuity and eye health. Generally, your exam will begin with a short conversation about your family history and your personal history, any vision problems you may experience, any current medications, and other important information your optometrist requires.

It is important to note that some eye conditions are hereditary, some medications have eye-related symptoms, and some health conditions (such as diabetes) can impact the eyes. An eye exam is a discussion that gives your eye doctor important insight into the health of your eyes prior to starting any tests.

Your optometrist will then perform tests to evaluate:

They will also check the health of the cornea, lens, eyelid, iris, retina, and the optic nerve of each eye. Ultimately, these tests check the overall health of your eye and will reveal any early signs of disease or potential vision issues.

After testing is complete, your optometrist may give you a prescription for corrective lenses and discuss any need for additional testing or treatment plans.

If you are looking for a new pair of glasses or you want to try contact lenses, we can help you find something that will fit your needs and lifestyle. From simple and classic to trendy and fashionable, we can find the right pair of glasses or contacts for you.
