How To Choose A Calgary Eye Doctor
Your eyes are so important! They go to work for you the moment you wake up and are in constant use till you go to sleep! Eyes help you to interpret and navigate through your environment. They are how you see the world. That’s why it’s so important that you have an eye doctor that you feel comfortable with and trust! So where do you begin when selecting a new optometrist?
What Type Of Technology Does Your Calgary Optometrist Use For Testing And Analyzing Your Vision And Eye Health?
Some people might think that an eye exam is just a simple test that involves reading letters off of the eye chart. They might not be aware that there’s advanced technology available to optometrists to help in the assessment and diagnosis of vision and eye health. At the Glenmore Landing Vision Center, we are proud that we carry some of the latest technology in eye care. We provide our patients with access to new eye care technology, such as the Optomap imaging machine. This piece of equipment allows for non-invasive retinal imaging of the inside of the eyes.
Even if you have no problems with your vision and eye health, and if the advanced technology and testing are of no interest to you, it is always good to know that what your Calgary eye doctor offers at their clinic. Should you ever need access to this type of technology at a later appointment, it is good to know that you have convenient access to it! Many eye diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy are monitored with the assistance of images as a result of new technology, like the Optomap machine.
What Are the Clinic Hours Of Your Calgary Eye Doctor?
Ensuring that your optometrist’s office offers convenient hours is important to many people. Especially in the case of an emergency. The Glenmore Landing Vision Center is conveniently open Monday through Saturday. We offer early morning and late evening appointments on select days. And we welcome seeing emergency appointments.
Is It Easy to Get An Emergency Appointment?
When selecting a Calgary eye doctor, it’s important to know how the office handles emergency appointments. Eye emergencies are often best handled when seen by an optometrist first. Because of this, at the Glenmore Landing Vision Center, we ensure our office has time built into our schedule to see those emergency patients.
Along with convenient office hours, our clinic offers online appointment booking. This allows you to book your next appointment directly into our schedule at any time of the day!
