Saúde e medicina
Our optometry clinic has been present in the Durham Region for several years. We provide you with a professional and attentive service, worthy of what you’d expect from an independent optometry clinic.
Adult & Senior eye exams
Annual eye exams are recommended for adults and seniors. A comprehensive eye exam
not only tests your eyeglass prescription but also tests for a variety of common ocular
health conditions and disease.
• A friendly staff member will start the exam
with computerized automated refraction and
eye pressure testing. You will then see the
• The exam will start off with a thorough history
of your previous eye exams, medications, and
family medical history. The doctor will then
check your eyeglass prescription for distance
and near/computer vision.
Do you frequently experience red irritated eyes, a sandy/gritty feeling and flaky material
on your lids and eyelashes? This is likely due to an overgrowth of bacteria on your eyelids.
• Symptoms of blepharitis include burning,
itching, watery eyes, and crusty eyelids. If
left untreated, blepharitis can result in dry
eyes, infections, and the formation of styes.
• BlephEx™ is a tool that painlessly removes
eyelid debris and the bacteria that grow in
this debris. It uses a microsponge and
medical detergent to gently cleanse your
eyelids. BlephEx™ may need to be performed
every 6 months to maintain eyelid health.
Children’s eye exams
Annual eye exams are recommended for children under the age of 19. Babies are
recommended to have their first exam at 6 months. Annual exams are recommended after
this. It is especially important that children have their pre-school eye exam at 4 to 5 years
• There are several eye conditions that must
be evaluated in childhood. Conditions such
as strabismus (crossed eyes or eye turns),
and amblyopia (lazy eye) must be detected
and treated early to ensure proper visual
• A child’s exam starts with an auto-
refraction to measure their prescription.
The doctor then tests visual acuity, fine-
tunes the prescription, and checks into
Dry Eye Testing
Do your eyes feel Sandy or gritty? Or do they water for no particular reason? If so you may
have dry eye disease. Dry eye disease occurs when your tear quality or quantity is
abnormal. We have specialized diagnostic tests, as well as state-of-the-art treatment for
dry eye disease.
• Dry eye diagnostic testing includes
meibography, tear film analysis, and
blepharitis assessment. Intense Pulsed
light (IPL) has been shown to relieve dry
eye symptoms through its thermal action,
by melting away thick oil clogging up the
• IPL also helps reduce sun damage, fine
lines, and wrinkles by boosting the
production of skin-firming proteins like
collagen and elastin. It also reduces acne,
pigment, and vascular lesions.
Computer Related Eye Strain
We are all spending more and more time on computers, smart phones, tablets, and other
devices. This adds a lot more strain on the visual system. Our eyes are relaxed when
looking at a distance, but more stressed when focusing up close.
• Being on a computer device for hours a day
adds to eye strain and fatigue. Our blink rate
also decreases when focusing on our work.
Headache and dry eye are a direct result of
computer-related eye strain.
• The 20-20-20 rule is a good habit for heavy
computer users. Every 20 minutes, look 20
feet or further (out a window or into the
distance) for a period of 20 seconds. This
practice allows our eyes to reset after staring
and helps reduce computer-related eye
Laser Vision Correction
Laser vision correction is a great solution for those of you frustrated with glasses or
contact lenses. Laser surgery corrects those who are near-sighted, far-sighted or who
• There are procedures to correct presbyopia,
so one does not need reading glasses. There
are several types of vision correction
surgeries available, and you may be a good
candidate for one procedure, but not so great
• Every consultation starts with a
comprehensive eye exam, including a
detailed history, visual needs questionnaire,
measurement of the eyeglass prescription,
and an evaluation of ocular health. Through
this process, we can determine the most
suitable Laser vision correction for you.
