Learn more about the key eye care services our optometric practice offers:
Regular eye checkups are important, even if you don’t require vision correction. A thorough eye exam involves testing that can evaluate the health of your eyes and spot common eye diseases, as well as assess your vision. Experts recommend having a complete eye exam either yearly or every 2 years.
Detecting any potential vision or eye health problems in children early on is crucial to their development. Infants should have their eyes checked starting as early as 6 months old, again as pre-schoolers or before they start kindergarten and annually throughout their school years.
Our optometrists are equipped with the latest technology to effectively diagnose and help you manage eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy. The earlier you are diagnosed means the sooner you can be treated—which means a better outcome.
To ensure we provide the best possible eye care for our patients, our eye doctors rely on the most up-to-date equipment and medical imaging techniques. Our comprehensive eye testing includes visual field testing of your peripheral vision. We have laser imaging with the newest Optos devise that evaluates over 80% of the retina and screen for medication damage. We also have access to mapping and OCT off site for an additional fee.
Our optometry team can quickly and conveniently take care of all your eye care needs here at our Kelowna clinic. We accommodate eye emergencies such as pink eye and other infections, foreign material removal, eye trauma, sudden vision loss, dislodged contacts, broken eyeglasses, scratched eyes, red or painful eyes, floaters or light flashes and itchy, irritated eyes.
Looking for an alternative to glasses and contact lenses? Try LASIK surgery, cataract surgery or other ocular procedures. We offer knowledgeable counselling on your available refractive surgery options, as well as pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care.
Dry eyes can lead to eye irritations and an increased risk of infection. If you suffer from dry eye syndrome as a result of a chronic lack of lubrication, talk to us about available options to manage your symptoms, such as artificial tears.
Ortho-K is a treatment option to correct mild to moderate nearsightedness and astigmatism. This process uses gas permeable contact lenses to reshape the eye. The lenses are worn overnight to maintain good vision throughout the day.
If you have blurred vision, light sensitivity, night blindness or difficulty reading, it’s time to schedule a complete eye exam—even if you have never had impaired vision before. Low vision can be brought on by aging, an injury, genes or eye disease.
Astigmatism is a common eye condition that causes blurred vision, but is easily treated by eyeglasses, contact lenses or even surgery in some cases. If you have astigmatism, your eye is not round, but shaped more like a football. It can occur in combination with other vision problems.
Presbyopia is the normal age-related worsening of vision, usually becoming noticeable after age 40. As we age, the lenses in our eyes thicken, lose elasticity and grow weaker, making it harder for the eyes to focus, especially close-up. Treatment can be as simple as reading glasses or bifocals.
Sports eyewear can improve your performance as well as provide eye protection while you’re on the tennis field or on a fishing boat. We offer sports vision testing to see beyond typical 20/20 vision to depth perception, eye-hand coordination and more.
If your child is struggling in school, it could be a result of vision problems (unable to read a book or see the blackboard, etc.). Starting vision care for your children early can ensure their eyes develop properly so they are able to fully participate in class.
Do you experience eyestrain, headaches, sore neck or dry eyes from staring at the computer screen for prolonged periods of time? Even if you don’t normally wear corrective lenses, they could be beneficial to lessen the symptoms of computer vision syndrome.
