Routine eye examinations for the aging population are extremely important as the risk for certain ocular diseases such as cataracts, macular degeneration and glaucoma increases. In many instances, these conditions can be seen by the optometrist before one becomes symptomatic. Early detection allows for appropriate monitoring and treatment. Our optometrists are firm believers that early intervention and preventative eye health is of utmost importance. All seniors beginning at age 65 are covered for a full eye examination every year under their OHIP plan.
