There is a common misconception that if a person sees well, their eyes must be healthy. In fact, many serious, sight-threatening eye diseases have no early warning symptoms. Your optometrist has the skills to detect many of these eye conditions in their early stages.
An eye exam is more than just reading letters off an eye chart – it is a complete, comprehensive exam and detailed examination of your visual ability, vision, and eye health. Early intervention gives a person the best possible chance of maintaining good vision. A comprehensive eye examination not only reveals the health of your eyes, but can also be an indicator of your overall health.Many general health conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure can be detected through comprehensive eye examinations.
The optometrists at North York Eye Clinic take the time to explain the results of your eye exam, describe your conditions, explain your options and listen to your eye care needs. Because maintaining good eye health is an ongoing partnership, we encourage you to ask questions and share your health information, which could be vital to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision problems.
