Have You Had a Comprehensive Eye Exam Recently?


For those of us blessed with healthy eyes, we might overlook the importance of taking preventative steps such as an eye exam. However, timely detection of any eye or vision problems is crucial to maintaining healthy eyes. This can easily be done with an annual eye test.


Many optical diseases are a-symptomatic. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can book a thorough optical examination at our Squamish or West Vancouver office, with our highly-trained optometric team. Our practices use the latest equipment to provide you with a thorough examination.


Glaucoma is the main source of vision loss, resulting in loss of sight for over three million Americans. Glaucoma is sometimes called ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can cause substantial damage without any symptoms. Nearly two-thirds of adults in America fail to use eye glasses or contacts and don't schedule regular eye exams, thus putting their eyes at substantial risk.


The problem is that most individuals don't realize that vision threatening diseases like glaucoma and cataracts are often a-symptomatic and without a comprehensive eye exam are frequently discovered only when it's too late.


Early eye disease screening should be on your check list. Be sure to set up regular eye exams with your local optometrist to maintain your vision and eye health for years to come.
