When to Schedule Your Next Eye Exam

Regardless of age, routine visits to your eye doctor are crucial for monitoring your visual health. We recommend following the guidelines set by the Canadian Association of Optometrists:

  • Adults (20–64): Schedule an eye exam at least every 2 years.
  • Seniors (65+): We recommend an annual eye exam.

Your personalized eye exam schedule may be adjusted based on your specific risk factors for vision problems and eye diseases.

The Importance of Regular Eye Exams

Aging brings about natural changes in our eyes, but certain age-related conditions, like presbyopia or cataracts, can significantly impact vision over time. Our comprehensive eye exams are designed to:

  • Monitor changes in your vision and overall ocular health
  • Confirm the accuracy of your prescription
  • Address any questions or concerns you may have

Caring for your vision is our top priority. You can trust us to prioritize your eye health.

What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

During your visit, we’ll delve into your medical history and discuss any family history of eye disease or vision issues. Our team will conduct a series of tests to assess the health of your eyes and determine your prescription. 

We also ask that you bring in information about your current medications and any glasses you’re currently wearing so we can get more information about your needs.

If any indications of eye disease or vision-related conditions arise, we’ll work with you to create a personalized treatment strategy.

Opting for a Dilated Eye Exam

We strongly advocate for dilated eye exams during annual visits to help detect signs of eye diseases early on when they are more manageable. The process involves using eye drops to widen your pupils, allowing for a more thorough examination. This helps us check for common eye problems, such as:

Since dilation can affect your near vision for a couple of hours following your appointment, we suggest arranging for transportation home with friends or family.
