Your eyes are an integral part of your life. Factors ranging from workplace environment, systemic diseases, heredity, prescription drugs, surgical procedures and contact lens wear can affect your eyesight.
Besides being able to treat eyestrain and prescribe glasses or contacts, your optometrist can recognize signs of serious diseases or conditions before noticeable symptoms appear. Your optometrist, using sophisticated imaging and diagnostic equipment, can detect many conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, high blood pressure, diabetes, tumor, multiple sclerosis, stroke and high cholesterol. Continuity of care and prevention of eye disease are very important to us in this practice.
Your yearly eye exam in Toronto & Etobicoke is essential to the health of your eyes.
