Our eyes enable us to take in and process visual information from the environment around us, making it essential for navigating our daily lives. That’s why it is essential to take steps to preserve the quality of your vision by getting an annual eye exam. At Eye Wonder Optical in Toronto, we want to help ensure the quality of your vision is preserved for years to come. Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
Why Are Eye Exams Important?
Eye exams are key to maintaining the overall health of your eyes and vision, as they can detect any changes or abnormalities in the structures of your eyes, as well as any problems with your vision. During your exam, our trained optometrist will check your eyes for any signs of eye disease or other health problems, as well as test your vision to make sure it is still within normal range.
What Can an Eye Exam Detect?
Eye exams can help detect a variety of eye and vision problems, including:
Refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism
Cataracts, glaucoma, and other eye diseases
Retinal problems such as diabetic retinopathy
Vision problems such as amblyopia (“lazy eye”) or strabismus (crossed eyes)
Signs of infection or inflammation
Vision problems caused by medications
When Should I Get an Eye Exam?
It is recommended that adults get an eye exam at least once every 12 months. Children should get their first eye exam between the ages of 3 and 5, and then once every year after that. If you notice any changes in your vision or have any other concerns, you should get an eye exam as soon as possible.
At Eye Wonder Optical, we offer comprehensive eye exams to help preserve the quality of your vision. Our experienced optometrists use state-of-the-art technology and equipment to ensure your eyes are healthy and your vision is clear. Contact us today to book an eye exam.
