Your child’s first eye exam by your optometrist should be at the age of 6 months. This is to detect any severe eye conditions such as cancers of the eye, genetic eye diseases, and eye turns, which require immediate attention. Following the first eye examination, your child’s eye exam should be done every year. Eye exams are free and fully covered by Alberta Health Care for all children up to the age of 19 years. Also ask us about Eye See..Eye Learn Program.
Just like we use sunscreen to protect our skin from harmful UV rays, we also need to protect our eyes. The most effective way to do this is to always wear sunglasses when we are outside, even during the winter months. UV damage to the eye can contribute towards diseases such as cataracts and macular degeneration. So start early, be proactive, and protect your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun! If you have children, start protecting their eyes at an early age by having them wear sunglasses regularly. Talk to our optometrist in Calgary about how to choose a pair of sunglasses that will provide optimal protection for your eyes. If you have a prescription, talk to our optometrist about prescription sunglasses and/or transitions.
As we age, our eyes, just like the rest of the body, need more attention. Many eye conditions occur with increasing age. Individuals over 65 years of age must get their eyes examined every year to screen for or monitor eye diseases. Many severe eye diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration are silent diseases, such that you would not know anything is wrong until it has progressed, and they are irreversible, so it is very important to detect and treat them early. Eye exams for individuals over the age of 65 years are free and fully covered by Alberta Health Care.
