How’s Your Vision Lately?

Do you ever wonder what it actually means to see 20/20? In eye care, 20/20 is a measure of how clearly you can see at a distance of 20 feet away. However, there is much more to having good vision than seeing 20/20. As doctors of optometry, we want to ensure every part of your eye is healthy and working well together.

UV and High Energy Blue Light Protection

Protecting your eyes against UV light is as simple as wearing a good pair of 100% UV polarized or tinted sunglasses. High energy blue light from the sun and digital screens may be associated with visual fatigue. For those who experience poor sleep or visual fatigue associated with screen viewing, blue-light filtering lenses may help reduce the symptoms.

Eye Protection

Every day in Canada, 700 workers sustain on-the-job eye injuries, and every year in North America over 30,000 sports-related eye injuries occur, 90% of which are preventable with safety eyewear. Use safety eyewear that is compliant with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

Eyes are the window to… your health

An optometrist can see an unobstructed view of your blood vessels, nerves and connecting tissue during an examination of the retina. Any conditions that affect your cardiovascular health can show signs in your eyes, even before you experience any symptoms. The key is early detection and intervention.

Vision is essential for all aspects of our lives. Imagine not being able to explore the outdoors, enjoy art and literature, or even travel to see the wonders of the world because of poor vision. We are dedicated to preserving and enhancing your vision to the highest level possible using advanced eye care and lens technology that is customized to your personal needs.
