Children’s Eye Exams:
At every stage of childhood from infancy to teenage years, proper vision is essential for success in development and learning, and children’s vision involves more than just 20/20 eyesight. Children need the following skills to be able to see, read, get around and learn about the world around them:
- Sharp near and distance vision
- Eye teaming and focusing skills
- Hand-eye coordination
- Eye alignment and peripheral vision
- Tracking and processing abilities
Any time a child shows signs of a lazy eye (amblyopia), vision problems, motor problems (bumping into things or falling often), difficulty reading or general difficulty in school, you should bring him or her in for an eye exam. Additionally, children should have milestone eye exams at the following ages:
- Up to 6 months
- Around 3 years of age
- Before starting school
Adult Eye Exams in Airdrie
While some changes in our vision are normal as we age, it is important to have your eyes checked regularly, especially if you notice a decrease in your vision. A regular comprehensive eye exam will check that your vision is up to par and look for signs and symptoms of eye conditions or diseases that could risk your vision permanently.
In addition to serious eye diseases such as cataracts, age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma or corneal ulcers, a comprehensive eye exam can sometimes detect general health problems such as diabetes, high-blood pressure or even cancer or a stroke. Further, many of these eye conditions do not show symptoms until permanent damage is done to the eye and vision, making early detection and treatment essential for saving eyesight and slowing the progression of the disease.
Before you come in for an eye exam, make sure that you know your family history so that our optometrists can properly assess your risks to provide the most thorough exam possible. We recommend that anyone over the age of 40 schedule a comprehensive exam on a yearly basis to maintain a long life of healthy eyes and vision.
