Early detection is crucial to maintaining good vision and healthy eyes. Your Optometrist works closely with both family physicians and Ophthalmologists to provide you with the best managed care. Common ocular conditions that are screened for, monitored and managed include Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Cataracts, Keratoconus, Retinal Detachments or disease.
Our Optometrists work closely with your family physician and/or Ophthalmologist to screen for and manage conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune disease (ie. rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn’s disease, lupus), patients taking high-risk medications (ie. Plaquenil®, prednisone).
When it comes to your child’s vision, what could be more important? One in five children has a vision disorder. Not knowing any differently, many of these children accept poor vision and other eye ailments as normal. If left unchecked, serious long-term effects can result.
Children should have their first complete eye exam at six months of age, at three years, before entering school and regularly thereafter.
At iSight Optometry, we are completely equipped to test your child’s eyes even if he/she does not know how to read. Vision screenings offered by family doctors and the school district are a great tool in detecting certain eye conditions, but a full examination of visual function and ocular health by an optometrist provides a much better indication of overall eye health. Many serious eye conditions don’t have any obvious symptoms. A thorough eye exam by an optometrist is the only way to know for sure
