Comprehensive Eye Exams
For Your Whole Family

Come in For a Complete Eye Exam at our Winnipeg, MB office!


The Canadian Association of Optometrists (CAO) recommends that infants undergo their first eye exam between 6 to 9 months of age, and preschool children have at least one eye exam between 2 and 5 years of age. School age children (6-19 years old) should have their eyes examined yearly to ensure good vision in school. Adults between 20 and 64 years old should have eye exams every 2 years, and yearly after 65 years old. Even if you don’t normally need vision correction, you still need to get regular eye exams. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure, and other disorders, because many disease can have an impact on vision and eye health.

When you arrive at Village Optical for your comprehensive eye exam, expect us to determine your prescription for glasses or contact lenses, check your eyes for eye diseases, and evaluate how your eyes function together. We will also assess your overall health by checking your eyes.

Routine Eye Exams

During a complete eye exam, your eye doctor will not only determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses but will also check your eyes for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator of your overall health.

What to Expect?

A comprehensive eye exam includes a number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to examine the health of the tissues inside of your eyes.

How Often?

Eyecare experts recommend you have a complete eye exam every one to three years to assess your risk for potentially damaging eye conditions, as well as to keep on top of any changes in vision you may be experiencing, especially to keep on top of your eyeglasses or contacts prescription. Read below for more details regarding exams based on age.

Eye Care for Adults and Children

How Often Do You Need to See the Optometrist, Based on Age?

The COA also recommends an annual eye exam for any adult who wears eyeglasses or contacts. If you don’t normally need vision correction, you still need an eye exam every year. Doctors often recommend more frequent examinations for adults with diabetes, high blood pressure, and other disorders, because many diseases can have an impact on vision and eye health.

If you are over 40, it’s a good idea to have your eyes examined every one to two years to check for common age-related eye problems such as presbyopia, cataracts, and macular degeneration.

Because the risk of eye disease continues to increase with advancing age, everyone over the age of 60 should be examined annually.
