We combine a team of skilled eye doctors, over 30 years of experience, top-notch technology, and friendly, efficient service! Do you really need additional reasons to visit Village Optical for eye exams and all eye care needs?
A Personal Eye Care Experience
Our eye doctors believe in personalized service, based on a solid, ongoing relationship with each and every patient. When you schedule your comprehensive eye exam in our pleasant Winnipeg office, you are booking time for us to get to know you, your personality, and your unique lifestyle needs – in addition to checking your vision and eye health thoroughly. At the beginning of your eye exam, our optometrist will ask you to share information about your medical history, visual condition and medications. We encourage you to bring any questions you may have, and we’ll do our best to address your concerns fully and patiently.
Tests & Procedures Tailored to Your Needs
Based on your individual condition and requirements, our eye doctors will design a comprehensive eye exam that meets your needs. The particular procedures that we perform will vary depending upon your age and health. In addition to checking visual acuity with a standard Snellen eye chart, we’ll also assess functional vision skills, such as focusing, eye mobility and eye teaming.
Our Winnipeg eye doctor will follow a complete evaluation of your vision with an inspection of your ocular health. We may dilate your eyes with special eye drops, which facilitates a clear view of your inner eye tissues. Using the latest diagnostic technology, a slit lamp (biomicroscope), and/or digital imagery, we’ll check your retina and optic nerve for any problems. We may also use tonometry to measure intraocular eye pressure, which can be a symptom of glaucoma when it is higher-than-normal. Our office is equipped with advanced equipment to ensure that your diagnoses are precise and your treatment is cutting-edge.
Benefits of Your Winnipeg Eye Exam
If your vision is blurry or uncomfortable, then the reasons to visit our eye doctors are immediately clear. However, if your vision is sharp and you have no complaints, you may wonder why there is a need to schedule an eye exam? Actually, there is much to be gained from routine eye exams in our Winnipeg office!
- Vision can change with age. For both children and adults, growing older is associated with the onset and development of many common visual conditions. If you already wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, our Winnipeg eye doctor may need to alter your vision prescription. If you never wore eyewear, you may need to start! After age 40, presbyopia is typical, and you may need reading glasses or multifocal lenses to read small print. Remember that undetected vision conditions in children can disrupt learning, and only a comprehensive eye exam will confirm that vision is optimal.
- Eye exams are the only way to detect eye disease at an early stage. Many ocular diseases, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy, do not cause symptoms at the beginning. Once you notice the signs of these conditions, the disease has typically progressed to a later stage – when it is harder to treat.
- Eyes give a view of overall health. Did you know that our Winnipeg eye care specialists can look into your eyes to view your general health condition? Many life-threatening conditions, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, and hypertension, are evident on the inner tissues of your eyes. If our eye doctor spots any problematic signs, we will refer you for the appropriate medical care.
Now that you are aware of all the reasons to have regular eye exams and what to expect during your appointment, we hope you’ll contact us to schedule a visit to our welcoming Winnipeg optometry practice!
