If you have gotten this far without any serious eye problems, that’s fantastic news! It is not, however, a good time to take your foot off the gas. Age-related vision problems like macular degeneration or cataracts become much more common once you pass 60 years of age, so eye care should become one of your top health priorities.
Our exams are quick, effortless and carried out by absolute experts. Reach us by phone or online and book your annual appointment today.
There are plenty of illnesses which can be detected by our optometrists even earlier than by your GP, including cancer and rheumatoid arthritis. The eye is a telling organ, and the delicate structures and blood vessels inside of it can paint a clear picture with respect to your overall health. As we age, our bodies are less able to fight off invasive health conditions, so an eye exam could catch diseases before they progress into anything serious.
At Westmount Optometrists & Glencoe Optometrists every exam is different and if we need more time for yours, then that’s what we’ll do.
The complete assessment is straightforward and involves:
On the one hand, we want to quantify how well you can see. Ageing eyes can trick us into thinking we’re just fine when often we are straining our eyes quite heavily; it’s our job to spot any loss of detail early as possible.
On the other hand, we look for signs of any eye disease which could be affecting your vision, or which isn’t yet showing symptoms. Whether you are are experiencing symptoms or not, our state-of-the-art equipment will help us determine what condition is causing them.
Early detection is key in limiting the effects of eye disease, so it’s never too early for an exam!
If it’s a simple refractive error, we will assess the strength of corrective lenses required to provide the best possible vision. This is the most common reason for wearing glasses, and isn’t anything to worry about once spotted.
Using our advanced examination equipment, we are able to detect a variety of eye diseases in their infancy before any symptoms present. If there are any signs to notice, our doctors will be there to find and treat them early.
