Regular eye exams should be a part of your health routine, regardless of your age and general shape. At Eye Care Centre in Lindsay, our doctor will check your eyes for common diseases, assess their functioning and, if necessary, prescribe glasses or contact lenses.
Since the state of your eyes is an indicator of your overall health, eye examinations are equally important for children and adults. As we grow older, the risk of many eye diseases increases, and so does the importance of an early diagnosis.
Children with Eye Problems
Does your child experience learning difficulties? Children who don't see well often have problems reaching their full potential at school. To determine the root of the problem, schedule an eye examination with an experienced optometrist, since children often don't realize the difference between "normal" and "imperfect" vision.
Children can be examined at any age if there are concerns about their vision, and currently eye exams are recommended as early as the age of 6 months and annually after the age of 3.
Neither verbal responses nor an understanding of the alphabet is required during the exam. At Eye Care Centre, we have child-friendly tests, including videos, fun shape and colours that help make children feel more comfortable.

Did You Know?
Binocular vision is not limited to affecting children. It can affect anyone suffering from diabetes, strokes, trauma or tumors. Binocular-vision-related difficulties include double vision and focusing problems, which can be treated with prescription glasses, prisms and vision therapy, depending on individual needs.
Even with 20/20 vision, 1 in 7 Canadians will develop a serious eye disease.
