What If We Told You That an Annual Eye Exam Was the Best Way to Protect Your Vision?
Your Eyes Cannot Recover Lost Vision. To Preserve Your Sight We Must Monitor Your Eyes.
Canadians are lucky because of our access to some of the best medical care in the world. We often take for granted the access to care that we have. For most Canadians, we know that we can visit the doctor whenever we feel ill or injure ourselves.
Our eyes are unique, and most Canadians don’t realize that the way we care for our eyes is different than how we care for the rest of our body.
An eye exam takes approximately 1 hour to complete, including our pre-examination testing. During the eye exam we will assess your vision quality, determine your corrective lens prescription (if needed), as well as identify any underlying eye diseases or conditions that may be presented.
The eye exam is non-invasive and is not painful.
Why Our Eyes Are Different
When you get a throat infection, you visit the doctor to have the cause of the infection diagnosed. With the diagnosis, the doctor then provides the appropriate treatment (whether it’s antibiotics or otherwise) and then you start down the road of recovery. For most illnesses, this is how it goes.
However, what if each time you get a throat infection, you lost part of your ability to swallow? Would this change how you approach caring for your throat?
For our eyes, vision lost to disease or illness is rarely recovered. For this reason, we strongly advise our patients to adopt a proactive approach to eyecare.
