  • Are you finding it hard to read small print?
  • Do you have to increase the size of the text on your phone or computer?

Top Vision Services You’ll Find at Your Local Calgary Eye Clinic

A typical annual eye exam checks both your vision and your eye health. Your optometrist will test for near and farsightedness, as well as put you through a series of tests designed to detect eye conditions and diseases, such as glaucoma, early.

Here are some of the top vision services offered at your local eye clinic:

1. Comprehensive Eye Exams

It is often recommended that patients come in for a bi-yearly examination if they have good eye-health and a yearly exam if they have a history of eye disease or a pre-existing vision condition.

During this exam, your optometrist will:

  • check your general and visual history including any eye health conditions you have/have had
  • ask about any medications you may be on.
  • assess your near and distant vision and check your prescription
  • check your eye movements and coordination
  • discuss your choice of vision correction (eyeglasses or contact lenses)

During the exam, several different tests may be performed to check your vision and examine the appearance and function of all parts of your eyes.

2. Contact Lens Fitting

If you are tired of wearing eyeglasses, contact lenses may be the right choice for you, especially if you have an active lifestyle. Your local eye clinic should offer comprehensive contact lens fittings to help you find the right contacts for your needs.

Contact lens fittings are important because they:

  • lower your risk of developing infections when wearing contacts
  • ensure your contacts fit perfectly for the best and most comfortable vision
  • teach you proper contact lens wear and care
  • prevent you from developing dry eye

3. Glaucoma Testing

Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness in the world and occurs when the pressure in the eye rises, damaging the optic nerve. Your eye clinic should offer glaucoma testing services to diagnose and treat the condition early before any vision loss occurs.

A glaucoma test usually involves:

  • eye pressure test
  • visual field exam
  • optic nerve assessment
  • gonioscopy

4. Cataract Management

A qualified optometrist should be able to diagnose cataracts through a comprehensive eye exam. It’s recommended that patients over the age of 40 visit their eye clinic at least once every two years for a checkup.

If a cataract is discovered and the clouding is disrupting your vision, then you may be referred to an ophthalmologist for cataract surgery.

Our eye clinic in Market Mall is happy to provide cataract management services including pre- and post-cataract surgery care.
