A Vital Part of Your Ocular Health

Regular eye exams are vital for your ocular health and vision. An eye examination is more than a vision test; it offers a view of the whole eye and can identify any potential problems. Early detection is the key to continued eye health. With up-to-date technology, you can expect a thorough examination catered to your specific needs. 

Early identification of any eye conditions can increase your chance of recovery and prevent damage to your eyes. If your prescription has changed, we can prescribe you a new pair of corrective lenses. Our team at Doctors EyeCare Grande Prairie is dedicated to helping you protect your eyes and vision. Please call us today to book your appointment.

What Are Eye Exams For?

A comprehensive eye exam is used to evaluate your vision, check for eye diseases, and determine your eye health. Many eye diseases progress without symptoms, but an annual exam can help identify problems as early as possible. 

Some common eye problems include: 

Eye exams can also identify any underlying health conditions such as high blood pressure, tumours, and neurological conditions

Eye Exam Frequency 

The frequency of comprehensive eye exams depends on the individual. The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends adults receive an eye examination at least every 2 years. If you have diabetes or other health conditions, you should receive an annual exam. 

An annual examination can help protect your ocular health and vision. At 65 years or older, a yearly examination can help care for your continued health.
