Routine eye examinations are recommended to assess your visual ability, detect ocular and systemic diseases and develop a baseline for future reference. The recommended time for routine eye examinations is outlined below.
Children are very welcome and should be in annually for their eye examinations. We start examining children at six months of age to ensure appropriate visual development and alignment of the eyes.
Much of our visual and vision-related development occurs from birth to six years of age, making it pertinent to detect any abnormalities early on. It is equally important to have children assessed prior to beginning school as the majority of learning problems in the early school years stem from undetected poor vision.
Our doctors are continually educating themselves and implementing modern technology so that they can offer you thorough and comprehensive examinations.
We routinely check for ocular diseases related to specific health conditions like diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol, hyper- or hypo-thyroid and myasthenia gravis. If you have any of these conditions or suspect you do, it is important to have your eyes examined by an eye doctor regularly.
Eye examinations for seniors encompass a thorough case history and diagnostic testing (including dilation) for age related eye diseases like age-related macular degeneration (ARMD), cataracts and glaucoma.
Using the newest research, our doctors will educate you on prevention to ensure your eyesight retains its fullest potential.
