Eye Exams for All Ages

Eye exams are an important part of preventive health care. We provide a thorough checkup both to ensure you’re seeing properly and to detect any early signs of eye disease.

Every pair of eyes is unique. We’ll take the time to get to know you and understand your lifestyle, concerns, and eyewear needs. Our treatments are tailored to you and we’ll always explain any procedures or tests to ensure your comfort.

If we determine that you need corrective lenses, you’ll love shopping our extensive selection of the latest brands and frame styles. Book your appointment and meet our friendly team today!

How Often Do I Need an Eye Exam?

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends that low-risk patients adhere to these guidelines at a minimum:

  • Adults between the ages of 20 to 39 should have an eye exam every 2 to 3 years.
  • Adults between the ages of 40 to 64 should have an eye exam every 2 years.
  • Adults 65 years and older should have an annual eye exam.

Patients with diabetes, high myopia, or other vision conditions should have more frequent examinations. We will work with you and your unique needs to determine the best exam schedule for your eyes.

Book your appointment today to keep on track with your eye health.

What Happens During an Eye Exam?

You’ll love our modern, stylish office. Our friendly staff can always be seen in the latest frame styles and our comfortable environment will put you at ease. If you’re a new patient, we’ll ask some questions about your health history, lifestyle, and current medications. We’ll discuss your family history, give you time to ask questions, and address any concerns.

Comprehensive eye exams are more than just a vision test. Our questions about your health and family history are designed to help us assess your risk factors for eye diseases or other vision conditions.

During the exam, we will carefully and thoroughly evaluate both the internal and external structures of the eye using the latest technology. We will measure your visual acuity to determine whether you need corrective lenses, or if you already have them, if your prescription is up-to-date.

When your exam is over, you’ll have plenty of time to browse our extensive selection of frames. Our experienced staff will help you find the perfect pair to fit your face shape and style, and you can try on as many as you like!
