Comprehensive eye exams for Adults

Optimize your vision and eye health with comprehensive eye exams.

Regularly scheduled eye exams are important to assess your vision and eye health. Our comprehensive eye exams will not only ensure your eyes are always seeing their best but are healthy as well. Our knowledgeable and skilled doctors, along with our advanced imaging technology, will screen for many eye diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration and more. Healthy adults should have eyes evaluated every 2 years.

Children’s eye exams

Our office recommends children come for their first eye exam between 6 and 9 months old, and annual visits thereafter. Up to 80% of a learning is visual, so let us help make sure your child’s eyes are performing their best, so they can learn and succeed. Alberta Health covers eye exams for children 18 years old and younger.

But my child doesn’t know their ABCs yet!

Our doctors tailor testing and procedures based on each individual child’s age and ability. We use videos, pictures, and toys to keep children interested and engaged. Children will often surprise you by doing better than you think!

Wouldn’t my child tell me if they were having a vision problem?

Young children often lack the words and ability to described what they are seeing and how they are seeing it, which is why it is so important to bring them to our office for annual exams. However, there are sometimes signs and symptoms that your child might be suffering from a vision problem. If you think your child might have a vision problem, contact us to schedule an appointment

Signs of a vision problem may include:
  • Frequent headaches
  • Squinting
  • Excessive eye rubbing
  • Avoidance of homework and reading
  • Eye turn or “lazy eye”
  • Head tilt or head turn

Seniors’ eye exams

Annual basic eye exams are covered by Alberta Health once a year for Albertans 65 and older.

Adults over 65 are at greater risk of developing vision-threatening eye diseases. Let our doctors help ensure you are getting the most out of your vision and keep track of your eye health. Annual exams are highly recommended so that we can detect any eye diseases earlier and help preserve your vision for life.
