Comprehensive Eye Exams in Surrey for All Ages

There are multiple factors that determine how often you should see our optometrists for a comprehensive eye exam. We will provide you with a personalized service that reflects your ocular health history, current condition and goals moving forward. At our clinic, we enjoy working collaboratively with our patients, educating them on their eye health in a comfortable, courteous and professional environment. We are also happy to provide refractive surgery co-management services including pre-operative and post-operative care for LASIK, PRK, cataract and other ocular surgeries. With a thorough examination with our eye doctors, we can diagnose a range of conditions including glaucoma, diabetic conditions of the eye, dry eye and macular degeneration.

Children

Children should have their first eye exam by 2 - 3 years of age. Children in school are recommended to have yearly eye exams until the age of 18 in order to detect vision problems that could interfere with their learning. Children with risk factors, however, may need to visit our Surrey optometrists more frequently. These factors include:

  • Having been born prematurely or with a low birth weight
  • The infection of the mother during pregnancy
  • A family history of eye disease
  • Developmental delays
  • Crossed eyes (strabismus)
  • High refractive error
  • Other illness or disease

Similarly, children who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should receive annual eye exams.

Adults

From the age of 18 to 64, adults (even those without an eyeglass prescription) should also visit our optometrists every 2 years for an ocular health check. Adults with risk factors, however, may need exams more frequently. These risk factors include:

  • A family history of eye disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High refractive error
  • Previous retinal detachment
  • Having an occupation that is visually demanding or potentially hazardous to the eyes
  • Taking prescription drugs
  • Previous eye injuries
  • Previous eye surgery

Similarly, adults who wear eyeglasses or contact lenses should receive annual eye exams.

Seniors

Adults 65 and over should be seen annually. Some patients are seen more frequently due to risk factors including:

  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Age related macular degeneration (AMD)
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Taking prescription drugs
  • High refractive errors

Patients needing further care with an Ophthalmologist will be referred to the appropriate treating physician. These patients are recommended to continue seeing their Optometrist yearly for an overall assessment and discussion of their ocular health and eye care needs. If you would like to schedule an exam with one of our dedicated optometrists, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
