Comprehensive Eye Exams for Cowichan Families

Comprehensive Eye Exams for Cowichan Families

There is so much that your eyes do for you every day. Whether it’s checking your emails, getting dressed, driving your morning commute, or taking care of our family, we rely on our vision for so much of our daily lives.

But as we age, our eyes can become more susceptible to a variety of health issues. For example, UV damage from the sun is cumulative, so you may not even notice something is wrong until the damage begins to affect your vision.

Most eye issues and diseases rarely exhibit symptoms in their early stages, so you may not even know something is wrong until permanent vision loss has already occurred.

As such, annual eye exams play a critical role in monitoring your eye health and addressing issues as they arise.

What To Expect During Your Exam

At Cowichan Eyecare, we’ve built our foundation on providing high-quality patient care. Your appointment with our careful, thorough, and compassionate team will include an in-depth review of your medical history and optical needs. We will also use cutting-edge technology paired with tried-and-true methods to thoroughly assess your vision and eye health, and address any issues we discover.

Our Technology

OCT, or optical coherence tomography, is a type of image testing used to photograph the retina. Our retinas have ten different layers, and the thickness of each can be accurately measured using this technology.

OCT helps us determine whether your eye is healthy and gives us the information we need to treat any problems thoroughly and effectively. OCT is used to guide treatment for diseases such as glaucoma, AMD, and diabetic eye disease.

Optomap is another piece of technology we can use to analyze your retinas. This revolutionary tool gives us an ultra-wide view of your retina and does not require dilation drops.

The images taken are stored for future reference so that we can keep track of changes in your eye structure, no matter how small. This allows for early diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases that may not present with symptoms until their later stages.

Lipiflow can be used to relieve dry eyes that are caused by meibomian gland dysfunction. This technology uses gentle heating and massaging on both the inner and outer eyelids to effectively remove the blockages that cause dry eye.

This gentle treatment lasts approximately twelve minutes per session, and full results are expected six to eight weeks after treatment.

To learn more about dry eye disease and the other treatments available, visit our Dry Eye Therapy page.

Our meibomian glands are responsible for the oily component of our tear film, called meibum. If these glands are not functioning correctly, it can lead to dry eyes. Meibography refers to a group of technologies and techniques used to image and study the affected individuals’ meibomian glands.

When Your Exam is Complete

Once we’ve completed your exam, we will discuss the next steps with you, including updating your prescription if necessary and helping you get new glasses. If you require additional testing or specialist consultations, our team can offer referrals and help you book these additional appointments.

And, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, we take the time to ensure they are thoroughly addressed. We want to ensure that you are confident in your vision.

If you have any additional questions about your eye exam, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
