Routine Eye Exams
A regular eye exam is vital for monitoring and treating early signs of eye disease and is an important part of maintaining your overall health. Eyesight is one of the most valuable senses you have. Routine eye exams are very important regardless of your age or your physical health. Most people don’t realize that their vision is deteriorating, until an examination has been done.
We recommend an eye exam every two years, or earlier if your optometrists tells you otherwise.
An eye exam performed by our optometrist will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, the exam will check your eyes for eye diseases, assess how your eyes are work together and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health. Adults should have their eyes tested to keep their prescriptions current and to check for early signs of eye disease.
Children and Youth
Eye exams for children play an important role in ensuring normal vision development and academic achievement as vision is closely linked to the learning process. Children who have trouble seeing or interpreting what they see will often struggle to learn. Many times, children will not complain of vision problems simply because they don’t know what “normal” vision looks like. If your child performs poorly at school or exhibits a reading or learning disability, be sure to bring them to be examined by nadine, our optometrist who specializes in children’s vision to rule out an underlying visual cause.
Plus, children’s eye exams are nearly all covered by the Province of Manitoba basic health coverage for those under the age of 19.
