Eye Health & Vision Exams in Mississauga
Did you know your eyes and vision should be routinely examined, even in the absence of symptoms? This applies to both children and adults. 20/20 vision does not guarantee healthy eyes. It is recommended adults have their eye exams every 2 years; infants starting at 6 months, then yearly from age 3; and those 60+ and with diabetes on a yearly schedule.
According to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind, some 250,000 Canadians have glaucoma. Half of these individuals are unaware they have the sight-threatening disease. This is one reason routine eye examinations by an optometrist or ophthalmologist are crucial for prevention, early detection, and timely treatment of eye disease and disorders such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, keratoconus, dry eye, myopia and macular degeneration.
