    What’s the Difference between an Optometrist and an Optician, Anyway?

    Optometrist? Ophthalmologist? Optician? There are a lot of “o” words that are easily confused when it comes time to decide who to visit in Kelowna to get help with your visual health. These titles are similar to one another because they all have to do with our sight and come from the Greek word “opsis,” or “view.” At the same time, each of these words does designate a slightly different way of helping with your vision.

  • Eye exam Kelowna
    Why are regular eye exams so important?

    Getting an eye exam in Kelowna isn’t simply to check if your glasses are the correct prescription (though that’s obviously an important part of it) or to get contact lenses. During your Eye exam, your Kelowna optometrist will also check your eyes for common diseases, assess the degree to which your eyes are working together effectively, and look for any symptoms of problems in your overall health that affect your eyes.

    Your eyes change as you get older, so different age groups will have to see their optometrist more or less frequently. Young children, teenagers, and those of us over 45 will need to get their eyes checked more often as these age groups eyes change faster than people between 20 and 40. Young children particularly need their eyes checked as they may not be aware of their eye problems at all, and those problems may affect their performance in school.
