Low vision means having impaired vision that cannot be corrected by glasses, surgery or medication. The most common cause of low vision is macular degeneration, an age-related disease that affects the central portion of the visual field. Talk to your eye doctor about your concerns with your vision and learn how they can help you in preserving your eyesight. #LowVisionAwarenessMonth

Back To School

It’s almost time!

As parents flock to back-to-school sales in coming weeks, you may need to add eyeglasses to the pens, school uniforms, laptops and backpacks on your child’s back-to-school supplies list.

Why?

Your son or daughter may be among the 2.6% of children in Canada with a vision impairment significant enough to affect their ability to learn.

Why is seeing clearly in the classroom so important?

It’s said that 80% of what a child learns through age 12 is through their eyes.

The best way to know if your child needs glasses is to put a comprehensive eye exam for him or her on your back-to-school to-do list.

Call your local optometrist today!

May is Healthy Vision Month

To keep your eyes healthy, get a comprehensive dilated eye exam where an eye care professional will use drops to widen the pupils to check for common vision problems and eye diseases. It’s the best way to find out if you need glasses or contacts, or are in the early stages of any eye-related diseases. Book your next eye exam today!

MiyoSmart Lenses

Myopia or nearsightedness is the most common reason for a prescription among children and young adults. Our lifestyles are showing an increase in this as children take part in more near tasks like using digital devices, studying and reading. Ways we can help control your child’s myopia would be to spend more time outdoors, give their eyes a break from time to time especially when doing their schooling and to make sure they have annual eye exams. HOYA has introduced lenses for glasses called MiyoSmart lenses and they have proven to decrease the progression of myopia by 60% compared to traditional lens options. If you have questions regarding your child’s sight or the MiyoSmart lenses, please reach out to our doctors and opticians who are more than than happy to help.
