Eye Exam Schedule

No matter your age, you should be undergoing regular eye exams. At Dorchester Optometry, we work hard to keep wait times for routine eye exams short, so you can get the care you need when you need it.


The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that adults between the ages of 20 and 64 visit their optometrist at least once every two years. However, depending on a variety of factors, including your risks of developing eye diseases or other serious conditions, your optometrist may suggest that you visit more frequently.

According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, adults 65 and older should visit their optometrist annually. However, if you’re at risk of developing vision problems or eye diseases, your optometrist may suggest you have your eyes examined more frequently.

Regular Eye Exams Play a Critical Role in Your Eye Health

Our eyes typically change as we age, but normal age-related conditions such as cataracts and presbyopia impact your vision as they progress. Regular eye exams allow your optometrist to detect and track subtle changes in your vision and eye health, address any questions or concerns you may have, and check that your prescription is up to date.

Sudden or unexpected changes in your vision may indicate that you’re developing an eye disease or other serious condition. If left untreated, these problems could rob you of your sight. Dorchester Optometry uses cutting edge technology, as well as advanced diagnostic testing and monitoring techniques, to assess your eye health and vision, in an effort to slow or even prevent eye disease-related vision loss.
