Eye Care Question of the Week: #2

Question:

How often should I have my eyes examined?

 

Answer:

One of the core beliefs behind eye-bar is that every patient wants to see they’re very best. However, far to often insurance plans, or government policies dictate our personal health care strategy. As Canadians, we also grew up believing that you only saw a doctor when you had a problem.

The concept of preventative health care however is starting to catch on across all areas of medicine. Research consistently shows us that early detection and diagnosis of medical problems helps to improve long term patient outcomes. Knowing your personal health and your risk factors empowers patients to make improved lifestyle choices.

So at eye-bar, we believe that everyone regardless of age should receive a comprehensive annual eye health examination. Annual eye exams by an eye doctor provide piece of mind, knowing that you truly are seeing your best and that your eyes are health.
