Don’t Compromise Your Vision

Regular eye exams are vital for safeguarding both your vision and eye health.

The Canadian Association of Optometrists guidelines recommend that patients between the ages of 20 and 64 have their eyes examined at least every 2 years, though most optometrists suggest annual exams.

According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, adults aged 65 and older should have their eyes examined annually.

Our Exam Process

A comprehensive eye exam includes several tests and procedures which are used to evaluate both the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from straightforward, like reading an eye chart, to complex diagnostic procedures, such as retinal imaging, which is used to examine the health of the tissues inside your eyes.

What Are We Testing For?

During a comprehensive eye exam, we will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how well your eyes work together as a team, and examine your eyes to gain insight into your overall health.

As we age, our eyes become more susceptible to a wide variety of serious eye conditions. To help safeguard your vision, eye exams for seniors at Claresholm Eye Care include additional testing for age-related conditions such as glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration. As our eyes mature, it’s important to detect these conditions early so they can be treated or managed as soon as possible.

Preparing for Your Eye Exam

We take a collaborative approach to eye care with our patients. As such, we want you to be an advocate and an active participant in your eye health. Here are some tips so you can be fully prepared for your appointment:

  • Bring your insurance information
  • Bring a list of all medications or other supplements you’re currently taking
  • Bring your current eyeglasses or contact lenses
  • Bring a list of any questions you may have or concerns you would like to address
