Protect Your Eyes With Regular Eye Exams

Routine eye exams are an essential part of preventive healthcare. They not only keep your prescription up to date, but they are also crucial for catching and preventing eye diseases before they cause damage. In many cases, early detection is the primary way to prevent vision loss and other complications.

Our eye exams are designed to detect many eye diseases even in their earliest stages. We used advanced diagnostics and trusted methods to get a complete picture of your eyes’ internal and external structures. These methods include optical coherence tomography, fundus photography, non-contact tonometry, Perkins tonometry, and more.

If we detect any signs of eye disease, you may be required to undergo further testing. If you have been diagnosed with an eye disease, we provide you with a thorough treatment plan and a recommended schedule for additional appointments. Whatever the condition, eye diseases can be alarming and scary, but we are here for you every step of the way.

Common Eye Diseases

We test for a variety of eye conditions and diseases, ranging from minor to severe. These tests look for:

Many people will experience some form of eye problem during their lifetime. Cataracts, AMD, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy are the leading causes of blindness in Canada.

Preventing Eye Disease

The best thing you can do to protect your eye health is to get regular comprehensive eye exams following the frequency recommended by your optometrist.

It’s also important to know if you’re at risk. Those with a family history of eye disease, are over 50, or overweight are more likely to develop eye disease. If you have another health condition, like diabetes, high blood pressure, or autoimmune disease, you’re at higher risk as well. If you have any complicated health conditions, it’s important you manage your condition and undergo annual eye exams to monitor your eyes for changes related to it.

Making healthy lifestyle choices can go a long way to protecting your eyes and lowering your risk for developing many health issues:

  • Eat healthy foods, including dark, leafy greens like spinach, and foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon or tuna.
  • Stay active. Exercise can help lower your risk of developing diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol.
  • Quit or don’t start smoking. Smoking is harmful for your overall health. It can also increase your risk of developing macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma.
  • Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun’s harmful UV radiation. If you’re unsure about choosing the right sunglasses, we can help!
  • Wear protective eyewear during activities like extreme sports or home repairs, or while at work. Safety eyewear protects your eyes from damage and injury.
  • If you wear contact lenses, make sure you’re taking the appropriate steps to prevent eye infections. Wash your hands before you touch your lenses and always disinfect and properly store your contact lenses between uses.

The best way to protect your eyes from various eye diseases is to undergo routine eye exams. We offer specialty exams tailored to the unique needs of all our patients. We use advanced techniques for detection to provide you with an accurate diagnosis and prescribe effective treatments.
