Life long Clarity
For both adults and children alike, eye exams are an important part of one’s general health maintenance and assessment. At the Revelstoke Optometry we're dedicated to promoting life long clarity.
Eye Exams for Infants
A baby’s visual system develops gradually over the first few months of life. You can ensure that your baby is reaching milestones by keeping an eye on what is happening with your infant’s development and by ensuring that you schedule a comprehensive infant eye exam at 6 months. At this exam, the eye doctor will check that the child is seeing properly and developing on track and look for conditions that could impair eye health or vision such as strabismus(misalignment or crossing of the eyes), farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism.
Eye Exams for Children
If your child is having developmental delays or trouble in school there could be an underlying vision problem. Proper learning, motor development, reading, and many other skills are dependent upon not only good vision, but your eyes functioning together.
Eye Exams after 40
Just like the rest of our bodies, our eyes begin to weaken as we age. There are a number of common age-related eye conditions such as presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration that can begin to affect your vision and your daily life. While some of these conditions are more of an inconvenience, others could lead to vision loss and dependency.
Beyond Just Seeing
Routine, annual eye exams are important to maintain optimal vision sharpness, treat new or existing problems, and detect eye conditions or other serious health conditions.
During a comprehensive eye examination, your eye doctor will be looking for initial signs of these diseases. If a problem with your eyes arises such as red eyes, eye allergies, dry eyes, eye swelling, eye pain, always seek an eye doctor as your first doctor to call since they are specifically trained to treat eye diseases.
Eyes are important indicators of overall health, and comprehensive eye care goes beyond a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. At Revelstoke Optometry Centre, we take the time to get to know you, your eye care history, and your vision needs.
Seeing clearly is just one part of your overall eye health. It’s important to have regular eye exams whether or not you wear glasses or contacts, and even if your vision is sharp.
The articles below explain what problems can be spotted with an eye exam, what’s involved in a comprehensive exam,
Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions that damage the optic nerve often caused by an abnormally high pressure in your eye.
A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear crystalline lens of the eye. This prevents the lens from properly focusing light on the retina at the back of the eye, resulting in a loss of vision.

Diabetic retinopathy occurs when there is a weakening or swelling of the tiny blood vessels in the retina of your eye, resulting in blood leakage, the growth of new blood vessels and other changes.
Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eyes' ability to focus on nearby objects. It's a natural, often annoying part of aging. Presbyopia usually becomes noticeable in your early to mid-40s.
If you experience a distortion or blurring of images at all distances -- nearby as well as far -- you may have astigmatism.
