The Best Way to Protect Your Eye Health & Vision

Your eye health and vision are important for everyday life. Even if you can see without issue, regularly scheduled eye exams are essential for your eye health. Many eye diseases can develop with little to no symptoms. 

At Maple Ridge Eye Care, we offer comprehensive eye exams that cater to your specific needs. We can get a complete picture of your eye health, recommend effective treatments, or write you a prescription for glasses or contact lenses

Why Do You Need Regular Eye Exams?

Your eye exam is more than a simple vision test—we conduct several tests to look at your eye health and identify signs of potential problems. Many eye conditions develop with time, making these tests more important as you age. Regular eye exams can help your optometrist identify these eye conditions before they affect your vision.

Some common vision problems related to adults and seniors include:

How Often Do You Need an Eye Exam?

The frequency of eye exams depends on your unique situation. According to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, adults should have a comprehensive eye exam a minimum of every 2 years. If you have diabetes or another health condition, we may want to see you more frequently. 

If you’re 65 years or older, an annual exam can help preserve your vision. We can track changes to your eye health and identify problems early, avoiding potential complications. 

What to Expect During Your Eye Exam

Your exam begins with a discussion about your medical history, including your family history, work and home lifestyle, and other relevant questions. After this, we can start your exam. 

We will use many different diagnostic tools throughout your exam. This technology helps us look at your eye health with immense detail. You can expect several tests during your comprehensive eye exam, such as:
