At many of the shops that dispense eyewear products, the eye exams are conducted by Opticians rather than by an Optometrist. At Visions Eyecare Centre all eye exams are conducted by an Optometrist. Click here to see our on-site Optometrists at each of our three locations. Optometrists are doctors, trained to examine your eye for health issues as well as to determine you prescription for glasses or contact lenses.
Regular eye tests are an important part of your vision care. For contact lens wearers, your optometrist will check that they are fitting properly. At Visions Eyecare, we provide free follow-up visits for all of our patients to ensure that their contact lenses are fitting properly.
There are many medical conditions that your optometrist will look for during the eye exam. One that is common among these in the Calgary region is "Dry Eye Syndrome". This problem can be treated easily with lubricating drops. If untreated, however, it can cause serious damage to the eye.
At Visions Eyecare, your eye care is our top priority.
