Make Your Eyesight a Priority

One of the most crucial parts of preventative health care is a comprehensive eye exam. Undergoing regular, thorough eye exams, even if you’ve never had an issue with your ocular health, is vital to keeping your vision clear and your eyes healthy.

We address many aspects during our comprehensive eye exams, from updating your eyeglass prescription to testing for serious eye conditions like glaucoma or cataracts. We’ll also assess your overall health and can even pinpoint early signs of disease, like diabetes and high blood pressure.

Many eye diseases don’t have any noticeable symptoms in the early stages, making it incredibly difficult to seek much-needed treatment without a professional opinion. We use advanced diagnostic technologies designed to detect early signs of disease to protect your vision.

If you’d like to book an appointment, please give us a call or use our convenient online form!

When Should I Have My Eyes Examined?

The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends a specific examination frequency for adults:

  • Those aged 20 to 39 should have their eyes examined every 2 to 3 years.
  • Those aged 40 to 64 should have their eyes examined every 2 years.
  • Those over 65 should have their eyes examined annually.

At Eye Effects, we love getting to know you and making sure your eyes and vision are appropriately cared for. So we recommend visiting us at least once a year for a proper examination so we can monitor your overall health and recommend treatment if necessary.

If you’re considered “at-risk” or have a preexisting condition, you may need to come in for an appointment more often. We will discuss this and any questions you have during your appointment!

We use a multifaceted approach to eye care to ensure all aspects of your health and vision are cared for. Your exam may take anywhere between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on your current health. If we need to do any additional testing, we’ll let you know ahead of time so you can prepare. If you have any questions about our eye exam process, please give us a call!

The first thing we’ll do is a quick discussion about your health history. We’ll ask about your current ocular and physical health, the medications you take, your family’s medical history, and your current prescription if you wear corrective lenses. 

We’ll also test your:

If you are over 60, you’re at a higher risk of developing glaucoma, so we may also test your intraocular pressure using a diagnostic test called tonometry.
