Our eyes change significantly as we age. Many eye diseases and conditions, such as cataracts, are more likely to develop with age. Alberta Health recognizes the importance of eye exams for senior citizens, and we encourage you to take advantage of that.
Vision changes are inevitable- they happen whether we want them to or not. Being proactive with our eye health (generally via eye exams every year) is the best way to ensure that you preserve as much of your vision as possible.
At Aurora Eye Care, we are here to help you enjoy a high quality of life. Our mission is to provide comprehensive eye care personalized for your changing vision. If you have concerns about your eye health, we’re here for you.
If it’s been more than a year since your last eye exam, we invite you to request an appointment for a day and time that’s convenient for you.
We utilize the latest technology available when performing our eye exams. This ensures that we get accurate information in a way that is minimally invasive.
A comprehensive eye exam generally takes about 60 min to complete. Rest assured we dedicate the time required for a thorough examination.
As our eyes change it’s normal to have questions about what to expect or what the best options are. Our Optometrists are experts in their field and are there to answer your questions and address any concerns you may have.
Vision that is lost, be it due to an eye disease like glaucoma or from a physical problem (such as retinal detachment), generally cannot be restored. There are some notable exceptions, such as cataracts, though they are exceptions and not the rule. Another important fact to remember is that most eye diseases develop without presenting initial symptoms. This means that by the time you notice a change to your vision, it’s likely too late to restore what’s been lost. Prevention is critical when it comes to eye care.
An eye exam is a fast, pain-free way to stay on top of your eye health.
