For all that your eyes do for you, regular checkups are the best way to take care of them. Maintaining your vision and ocular health with annual visits could make the difference between a lifetime of fantastic eyesight and serious vision loss. One hour, once a year is all it takes to ensure your eyes are functioning well and free from disease or detect early warning signs for conditions like glaucoma and cataracts.
For your first visit to our clinic, we will take in some standard information from you including your medical history, plus some personal information like your address and phone number, and your insurance information. We keep this information confidential and update it at each appointment. If you have a prescription, we ask that you wear your contacts but bring their case and any glasses you have.
We do a number of visual acuity test to find out how clearly you see both near and far and within your periphery. We also check your eye teaming, depth perception, and colour vision. These include tests using eye charts and object following, the cover test to test one eye at a time, plus 3D glasses to measure depth perception. These are non-invasive and pain-free tests that rely on your response for results.
This high-tech portion of the eye exam gives us a chance to screen for a wide range of ocular diseases. We use a slit lamp to examine the structure of your eyes, allowing our optometrists to see the health of your cornea, lens, retina, and optic nerve. We use an autorefractor to determine your prescription and an aberrometer to determine any other refractive errors. Tonometry allows us to test your intraocular pressure, also known as your IOP.
We take the time to discuss the results of your tests and the health of your eyes. You should feel confident in understanding your own vision and ocular health. If you have any warning signs of eye disease, we immediately begin to build a plan for you to prevent, manage or treat them. Whether that is vitamin supplements, eye nutrition, pharmaceuticals, or in-office treatments, we will be there every step of the way.
As you age, your eyes continue to change. Just as you notice your hair may not be the same colour it was when you were younger, your eyesight may be changing as well. Perhaps the small print seems even smaller or you don’t see colours as bright as you used to. These could be regular aging changes or they could be the signs that something is wrong.
Early detection is the key to prevention and management of a variety of conditions, including common age-related issues. Cataracts affect the lens as you age, causing colours to lose their lustre. Glaucoma, caused by high eye pressure, deteriorates your peripheral vision so slowly it is virtually impossible to detect the early signs. Both of these diseases can be mitigated if they are detected early.
For those looking to live free from frames, we offer contact lens exams and fittings. A proper exam is vital to your contacts being comfortable and safe for your particular eye shape and condition. We have a number of specialty contact lenses for all kinds of refractive errors. Even if you have been told you are not a good candidate for contacts in the past, visit us to find out what options may be available to you.
When you’re ready to discuss laser eye surgery options, we are here to help. We offer the most in-depth information about undergoing laser eye surgery and can answer any questions you have. We are well-connected with the best ophthalmologists in the Surrey area and well-versed in the pre- and post-operative care of refractive surgery.
Located in the Heart of Surrey, along King George Boulevard, we welcome anyone in the Langley, Delta, Cloverfield and Surrey area to come visit.
