Being able to see clearly is just one facet of your overall eye health. Dr. Jade recommends that you get regular eye exams, whether or not you have glasses or contacts, and even if your vision appears to be perfect.
Why Are Eye Exams Important?
An eye exam can catch eye problems in their early stages, helping to prevent vision loss and other serious eye issues. With a thorough eye exam, you can catch things that you wouldn’t have noticed otherwise. For additional information on eye exams, visit CNIB’s website and learn about the importance of regular eye exams.
Preparing for an Eye Exam
Be sure to contact the office prior to your exam to know what to bring with you. It’s also good to ask how often you should schedule eye exams. With our handy eforms, you can book your appointment online as well as send us your medical history.

Eye Exams for Contact Lenses
A more focused eye exam is required to determine if your eyes are suitable for contact lenses. Contact lens exams will provide the measurements and testing required to not only determine if contact lenses are right for you, but can help generate your contact lens prescription.
Eye Exams for Children
Your child’s eye health is important and it’s never too early to bring them in for an eye examination. A child’s eye exam is specially crafted to address developing eyes. For more information on eye exams for children, read CNIB’s article on “Teaching Kids Good Eye Habits.”
