Routine Eye Exams - Urgent Care Visits
Disease and Treatment: One of the key components in preserving your vision is a regular eye exam. Unfortunately some eye conditions, such as glaucoma, present absolutely no warning signs. During a routine eye exam, your doctor will check the pressures inside your eye as well as look for any damage which may be occurring. Other factors that can help prevent serious eye disease include protecting your eyes from the sun, monitoring your blood pressure, controlling your blood glucose levels, eating foods high in antioxidants and not smoking cigarettes.
Children: A frequently asked question we receive is "What age should my child have their first eye exam?". It comes to a surprise to many to hear that we suggest you have your child's eyes checked at six months of age. Although infants cannot talk, we can still determine their prescription, ensure their eyes are in proper alignment, and look for any early eye disease. Follow up examinations should occur at two years of age and again prior to beginning kindergarten. All children's eye services are covered by Alberta Health Care until their 19th birthday.
Lasik Surgery:Another commonly asked question we hear is "Am I a candidate for Lasik surgery or Contact Lenses?". Please see our section called Medical Services which outlines some of the considerations we need to address before making a decision.
All medical eye care is now covered through Alberta Health Care at our clinic regardless of your age. If you are having an eye-related problem please contact our office for more details on this program. This is the first step prior to a specialist / ophthalmologist referral in Alberta.
