Vision and ocular health conditions are not always accompanied by recognizable symptoms, and there is often an increased risk to the patient if timely treatment is not initiated. In general, children 19 years and under, seniors 65 and over, and those with medical conditions or previously diagnosed eye conditions or a high prescription should have their eyes examined at least once a year. Otherwise, people ages 19-64 that are healthy and have no eye conditions should be seen at least every 2 years. After your initial examination, we will schedule regular checkups for you at a frequency that meets YOUR particular eye care needs. Many factors (hypertension, diabetes, family history of eye disease, those on medication which may have ocular side effects, etc) will influence the frequency of your eye examination, and the doctor will weigh these factors in deciding when you should be seen again.
Eye Examinations for children are recommended as early as 6 months of age. Different types of targets, shapes, numbers and letters are used to determine a child’s visual acuity depending on their age. Peripheral vision, binocular vision, 3-D vision, and ocular motility tests determine how the eyes work together. Colour vision assessment is also done as soon as the child understands how to do the test. An approximate prescription can also be determined from a non-verbal child just by shining a light and holding some lenses in front of their eyes.
