When to Visit Us for an Eye Exam
No matter your age, consistent trips to the optometrist are important to monitor your visual health.
The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends:
- Adults (20–64) should have an eye exam every 2 years.
- Seniors (65+) should have an eye exam annually.
Depending on your risk factors for vision problems and eye diseases, we may recommend an eye exam schedule tailored to your specific needs.
Getting a Dilated Eye Exam
We also offer and recommend dilated eye exams at Central Optometry with your annual eye exam to check for signs of eye diseases early on when they’re easier to treat.
A dilated eye exam is simple and painless; your doctor will give you eye drops to widen your pupil and make it easier to check for eye diseases. Dilating your pupil allows more light into your and helps us check for common eye problems such as:
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Age-related macular degeneration (AMD)
We recommend arranging for transportation with friends or family after your exam if you have had trouble after dilation in the past. For most patients, it affects your up-close vision for a couple of hours.
