We Work Hard To Keep Your Eyes Healthy

At Corktown Eyecare, we go above and beyond to make sure you're eyes are healthy and your vision is clear. We do much more than simply determine your glasses or contact lens prescription. Our optometric team checks your eyes for eye diseases and conditions that could harm your long-term eye health, evaluates how your eyes work together as a team, and looks for optical signs of conditions that may impact your overall physical health.

We are commonly the first healthcare professionals to detect certain chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes as part of a routine eye exam.

For both adults and kids, comprehensive eye exams help ensure that your vision remains clear and your eyes stay healthy.

Save Your Vision With An Annual Eye Exam

Many potentially vision-threatening eye diseases show few, if any, signs or symptoms until after they've already done significant damage. These conditions include glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy.

Keeping up with your annual eye exam can ensure early detection and treatment of these conditions, halting or slowing down their progression and saving your eyesight.

Eye Exams for Children & Young Adults

An estimated 5% to 10% of preschoolers and 25% of school-aged children have problems with their eyes and/or vision. To ensure that your child's vision is developing properly from the very beginning, you should bring them in for their first eye exam at 6 months old. If their vision and eyes are fine at that point, their next exam should be at age 3. Once they start school, you should bring them in every year before the school year starts to make sure their eyes are up to the task of learning.

Common factors that could increase your child's likelihood of vision problems include:

  • premature birth
  • developmental delays
  • turned or crossed eyes
  • the family history of eye disease
  • history of eye injury
  • other physical illness or disease

Consult with our Downtown Toronto optometric team for personalized recommendations to correct vision issues and help your child succeed.

What Happens During An Eye Exam?

During an eye exam at Downtown Corktown Eyecare in Toronto, Ontario , we'll check your vision to make sure you have the most up-to-date prescription for your glasses or contacts.

You'll read from a basic eye chart, which tests your eyesight at various distances. We'll also check for astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness using a device called a phoropter. This procedure involves having you look through a series of lenses, and asking you to give feedback on which ones give the clearest vision.

Another device, known as a retinoscope, allows us to measure how light focuses on your retina with each of the different lenses.

These tests, among others, provide us with the information needed to check your eye health and issue an accurate prescription.

Vision Exams For Those Over 40

Our eyes are constantly changing as we age. Several common age-related eye conditions such as presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration can start to affect your vision and the way you live your daily life.

If you're over 40 years old, it's important not only to keep up with your yearly eye exams, but also to make sure that you're aware of any changes in your vision or how your eyes feel, so that we can catch eye diseases and conditions early on. The earlier these conditions are diagnosed, the more successfully they can be treated.

Safeguard your vision. Book your eye exam with Corktown Eyecare in Downtown Toronto today.
