Common visual impairment issues include nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. If you don't suffer from these specific issues, you may need to see an optometrist at some point in your life.

Optometrists treat eye irritations, infections, and injuries. Establishing care with a qualified optometrist helps you receive faster treatment.

This guide helps you decide what to look for in an optometrist and how to choose the best eye doctor for you!

Why Should You See an Optometrist?

Many people live with undiagnosed or untreated visual impairments. If left untreated, these conditions can lead to serious issues. Glaucoma and blindness are the most serious outcomes due to untreated eye problems.

Scheduling a yearly eye exam is one of the easiest doctor appointments you can make. Even if you do not currently have vision issues, a routine exam ensures your eyes stay healthy.

If your vision changes, it is important to have your eye prescription updated. If you are a candidate for contacts, talk with us about the best brands for your eyes.

What Happens During an Exam?

St. Albert Vision Centre conducts comprehensive eye examinations on each patient. Our exams ensure a thorough, pain-free visit. We want your time with us to be beneficial and stress-free!

During your visit, we check for many factors. Your exam includes focusing capabilities, eye disease checks, refractive errors, and much more. Examinations for glaucoma are also conducted.

If you are a current contact lens wearer, we will check the fit of your lenses for accuracy and comfort.
