  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Shopping
  • Watching TV
  • Using digital devices
  • Driving a vehicle
  • Telling colours apartDuring your eye exam, our optometrists can determine if you may benefit from additional strategies to cope with day-to-day life and refer you to a low vision clinic if needed

Can Low Vision Be Prevented?

Some health conditions and eye trauma are not necessarily avoidable. However, for many eye conditions, a healthy and active lifestyle and regular eye exams (even if your eyesight is healthy) are a great step in maintaining good lifelong ocular health.

With the numerous conditions that can lead to low vision, your best chance to retain good vision is early detection and early and ongoing management of vision-threatening ocular conditions.

Regular eye exams are critical in detecting eye and health conditions. The earlier an ocular disease is diagnosed and treated, the longer you can preserve your eyesight. Please book your eye exam today!
