It all starts when you book an appointment. Book yours today with the team at See Eye Clinic.
Why Eye Exams Are Important
Even if you think your vision is “normal,” it’s still important to have regular eye exams. Eye exams can help determine your lens prescription as well as detect a range of eye health problems that may develop without initial symptoms.
Some of these concerns may naturally occur with age, but others may develop based on your overall health quality, genetics and lifestyle.
We recommend having an eye exam at least once every year so we can monitor your eye health and detect issues before they affect your vision.
What Should You Expect?
At See Eye Clinic, we believe in providing a completely personalized experience from start to finish.
From the moment you walk into our practice, our team pays close attention to your needs and happily addresses any questions and concerns you may have. We use an advanced assortment of diagnostic technologies to help determine your eye health and vision quality.
By the end of the exam, you’ll have a clear understanding of your eyes and what you can do to support them.
Discussing Your Eye Health History
We’ll ensure your health history is current and correct for the first part of your eye exam. Please feel free to ask questions or stress concerns during this conversation, as it will help us orient the exam to better suit your needs.
Determining Your Lens Prescription
After our initial discussion, we’ll then determine your lens prescription. Refractive errors like nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia) and astigmatism are common in adults, but they may worsen as you age.
We can correct these concerns with both glasses or contact lenses. In some cases, we may recommend laser eye surgery.
Detecting Eye Health Concerns
Once we determine your lens prescription, we’ll use an array of diagnostic technologies to examine your eyes and look for potential concerns. Many eye diseases and conditions can develop without initial symptoms, but fortunately we can detect these issues with the help of advanced medical instruments like:

Let’s take a quick look at some eye health and vision concerns patients may develop throughout life.
Presbyopia is an eye condition that typically develops in adults 40 years or older. It occurs when the crystalline lens in your eye loses its ability to focus, making it especially hard to see up close.
Multifocal eyeglasses and contact lenses are among the most common strategies for addressing this issue.
Cataracts develop with age, affecting the clarity of your crystalline lens. As they develop, your lens becomes hazy, milky and cloudy, eventually impairing your vision.
We can prescribe contacts and eyeglasses to help address early cataract-related vision problems, but the only way to restore your vision is by having cataract surgery.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is one of the most common eye diseases patients can develop as they get older. AMD is one of the leading causes of vision loss in older adults and can lead to permanent vision loss if it isn’t addressed.
AMD affects your macula, the centremost part of your retina responsible for providing your central vision. We can detect this issue by examining your macula during an eye exam with the help of diagnostic technology like the AdaptDx.
