During a comprehensive eye exam, our Doctors of Optometry can look for signs of eye diseases and other potentially life-threatening health conditions.
At Saanich Optometry we do tests for your vision including finding the best eyewear and contact lens solutions to fit your life style. Our comprehensive eye health exam also includes high-tech testing for eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration (AMD) and dry eye. During the eye health exam our doctors also look for any signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, and cancers.
An eye exam is one of the easiest ways you can protect your overall health. The eye has tiny nerves and blood vessels close to the brain that can give clues to your overall health. The examination of these structures in the eye allows Optometrists to be one of the first healthcare professions to find these problems and work with your family doctor to decrease your risk of these serious conditions.
