For patients In Calgary vision care should be a priority. During your eye examination, our eye doctors not only get you a prescription for glasses and contacts, but they also thoroughly check the health of your eyes. At the Glenmore Landing Vision Center, our team of eye care specialists provide our patients in Calgary vision care that goes above the normal standards of eye care. We provide state of the art diagnostic equipment that aids the doctor in the detection and management of many eye diseases and conditions. Cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and keratoconus are just a few common conditions that the doctors are able to diagnose and monitor.
In Calgary vision care and eye health are important to maintain and will be assessed by your doctor at the time of your eye exam. It is important to assess the health of the eyes, as many eye diseases have no signs or symptoms and are often painless. Once a disease is diagnosed it is very important to have regular eye exams to help control and manage the disease. Left untreated, some conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration can lead to severe vision loss and in extreme cases, blindness.
At the Glenmore Landing Vision Center we provide our patients in Calgary vision care, which includes using leading edge optical technology. Our state of the art diagnostic equipment aids the doctors in disease diagnosis and management. Digital photos of the Retina can be taken at every exam. These photos remain on file and act as a baseline that your doctors can refer back to during future eye exams. A visual field test can also be performed to map any areas of vision loss and damage often caused by retinal diseases and tumors. To help in the detection of glaucoma, internal pressure checks on the inside of the eye are done routinely on patients over 18 years of age.
At our office in Calgary vision care are our doctors key focus. All of our optometrists have their Therapeutic Pharmaceutical Agent Certification which means they are able to write prescriptions for medications needed in controlling and treating many eye conditions and diseases.
In the advanced stages of some eye diseases, a referral to an ophthalmologist (eye specialist/surgeon) may be made. By providing patients in Calgary vision care under the co-management of an ophthalmologist, you will receive the best care to help maintain and preserve your vision while treating your ocular disease.
