Supporting Healthy Eyes

Looking after your eyes and vision starts with regular eye exams. Even if you think you can see clearly and haven’t experienced any issues, eye exams are crucial. Eye exams protect your eyes from eye diseases that could develop without symptoms.

Aside from checking for eye diseases during your appointment, we’ll also test your visual acuity and your refraction to check for vision conditions like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism.

Attending regular eye exams is crucial for protecting your eyes and vision. Visit our practice for your next comprehensive eye exam.

Frequency of Eye Exams 

Even when your eyes have stopped growing around age 20, they still require regular attention. To best care for your eyes, the Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends patients between 20 and 64 visit for an eye exam every 2 years.

Common Eye Diseases

Eye exams aren’t just about updating your prescription. A key part of every eye exam is checking for developing eye diseases. If they are identified in their early stages, they’re easier to manage and control, lowering the risk of vision loss or complications.

Eye diseases can develop for various reasons; however, it’s common for them to emerge without any early symptoms or warning signs. Therefore, it’s important to be aware of eye diseases and the effect they can have on your vision. During your eye exam, we’ll typically check for the following conditions.


Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that affects the optic nerve. If the optic nerve is damaged, partial vision loss and complete blindness can occur. Glaucoma sometimes lacks early warning signs and symptoms, so regular eye exams are often the only way to catch the condition early.

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in people over 60 years of age.

As the eyes age, its naturally clear lens will begin to cloud. These clouded lenses are called cataracts. While this is a normal part of aging, cataracts can emerge more quickly due to smoking and diabetes.

A stronger lens prescription can be a solution for patients with cataracts. However, to be properly treated, cataract surgery may be needed.

Diabetic retinopathy is an eye disease that is specific to patients with diabetes. The disease is caused by an imbalance in blood sugar, affecting the blood vessels in the eyes. These blood vessels are at risk of breaking and leaking into the retina. If the blood vessels leak, patients are at risk of partial vision loss and complete blindness.

To protect their eyesight, we recommend more frequent eye exams for patients with diabetes.
