In addition to providing you with a precise prescription for your glasses, our exam is about checking the health of your eyes. We want to identify and treat eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration in a timely manner. Our goal is to help you see clearly and keep your eyes healthy.
Roughly 80% of what children learn is gained through vision, so it’s important to start early to ensure the children have clear vision and healthy eyes. We can perform an eye exam with children who cannot read letters or are hesitant to respond
After your prompt referral, we work with cataract surgeons, glaucoma and retinal ophthalmologists to ensure your treatment was effective and your eyes stay healthy.
We provide Laser surgery co-management. If you are thinking about laser vision correction, we will give the pros and cons as they pertain to your specific prescription and vision requirements.
Dry eye syndrome is a common problem that can cause blurry vision and serious discomfort. Often patients experience sharp pain and watery eyes. We can discuss changes to your environment and habits, recommend prescription eye drops, preservative-free artificial tears, lid treatments and omega-3 supplements.
We have solutions to reduce eyestrain such as lenses designed specifically for screen users. We also encourage choosing effective coatings to block blue light.
If your child has complained about blurry vision in the far distance, they may have a condition called myopia (or nearsightedness). Myopia in a child tends to increase with age, and it often does not stabilize until the late teens or even early twenties. The doctors at our Myopia Control Clinic employ treatments that are 50-60% effective in slowing down the rate of myopia progression. Our program involves an initial consult and follow-up, with additional follow-ups every 3 to 6 months depending on your child’s specific treatment plan. Our treatments include Hoya MiyoSmart and Essillor’s Stellest spectacle lenses, CooperVision MiSight contact lenses (soft 1-day disposable lenses), and prescription atropine eye drops. To ensure that we are providing the most up-to-date care for your child, our clinic utilizes the Topcon MYAH, a state-of-the-art instrument specifically designed for myopia control. This instrument tracks physical changes in the eyeball that are critical to a thorough myopia management program.
Macular degeneration is the leading cause of blindness in North America in adults over the age of 55. Prevention and early detection can help save your vision. UV protection and good nutrition play a key role in preventing macular degeneration. Living a healthy lifestyle by keeping your blood pressure down, not smoking, reduce your intake of fatty foods and increase your intake of antioxidants rich fruits and vegetables.
The widefield retinal camera and OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) provide detailed images of the macula to allow us to detect subtle changes in the health of your macula even before symptoms are noticed. This means early detection, monitoring and treatment. Our doctors can discuss ways to minimize the possibility of vision loss due to macular degeneration. We want to do everything we can to protect your central vision.
