The health of our eyes lets us live a quality life, as constantly straining our eyes to see things is likely to cause the onset of headaches and result in poor vision. The Canadian Association of optometrist recommendations for the minimum frequency of routine eye examinations are as follows-

  • Infants and toddlers between 6 and 9 months should have their first eye examination.

  • Preschool Children between 2 to 5 years of age should undergo at least one eye examination. 

  • School-going children between 6 and 19 should undergo an eye examination annually.

  • Adults aged 20 to 39 are advised to go for an eye exam every 2 to 3 years. 

  • Adults aged 40 to 64 must take an eye examination every 2 years.

  • Adults aged 65 years or older should take an eye examination annually as the risk of developing ocular disease is higher at 65 and older. These exams can detect early signs of age-related eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.


Scheduling Routine eye exams is vital for the eyes' health and the quality of vision. With Dr. Holly Parker, you can take a painless and stress-free eye exam in St. Albert. We serve patients of all ages!

Everyone has unique vision correction needs due to varying degrees of near or far-sightedness and astigmatism. Today's lenses are customised using your prescription and the style to provide your personalised view through your eyeglasses. Three common types of prescription lenses are:

  • Single vision lenses have one power from edge to edge; they are typically prescribed to correct for near-sightedness, far-sightedness, and astigmatism.

  • Progressive lenses provide two or three focal points in one lens to facilitate near and far sight without switching your glasses. Progressive lenses provide smoother vision and wider fields of view and offer two choices:

  • Progressive bifocals offer two focal points-close-up lens power for reading, texting, and all close detail work and distance vision power to see far away.

  • Progressive trifocals offer three focal points for near, mid-range, and distance sight for helping to perform close-up tasks, mid-range for seeing computers and dashboards, and far away view. The lens power distribution facilitates performing all vision tasks efficiently without adjusting the lens. The bottom part of the lens has close vision, the middle part for medium range, and the top for distance vision.

  • Non-prescription lenses for eye protection are popular as a stylish accessory but can be enhanced with various protective treatments such as blue light filtration for those spending a lot of time in front of a computer or mobile screen.
