  • I see 20/20, should I still get my eyes examined?"
    The short answer is Yes. Seeing 20/20 does not necessarily mean that eye health is perfect. The best examples of this would be diseases such as macular degeneration and glaucoma. Initial onsets of these diseases may not cause any noticeable changes in vision. However, once changes do occur and become apparent, the damage is permanent and changes to vision is irreversible! For this reason, eye care is not only about seeing 20/20 but more importantly, early detection and prevention!
  • Why do exam fees vary from clinic to clinic?
    While most standard eye examinations are similar, fees can vary between clinics depending on the types of testing that are available and done during your visit. These extra testings allow us to provide you with a more in depth and detailed examination to help with early detection and prevention of vision and ocular problems. Please contact our office if you'd like to inquire about prices for our services.
  • How often should I get my eyes examined?
    In general, it is recommended that everyone should get their eyes checked every 2 years in order to ensure that your eyes are healthy. However, this is also dependent on several other factors such as age, visual needs, systemic and ocular medical history as well as family eye history. According to the Canadian Association of Optometrist, the following is a general guideline: - Ages 3 to 19 years old: Annually - Ages 20 to 64 years old: Every 1-2 years depending on systemic and ocular health - Ages 65 years old and up: Annually - Patients with Lasik/Refractive surgery: Annually While this is the general guideline, frequency of visits can vary depending on the health of the patient. For example, patients with glaucoma or diabetes may require more frequent visits.
