Optometrists are specialists in eye health, whether for an eye exam or an emergency. Among other things, they can screen for eye diseases and prevent the risks of their aggravation, advise you on how to prevent visual problems and promote ways to promote good vision.

Did you know that according to the Canadian Association of Optometrists, it is advisable to perform a complete eye exam on a regular basis depending on your age and your health condition? For example, for school-aged children, people under 18, and people 65 and over, it is recommended to have an exam every year. For adults, depending on your age and health condition, the examination is recommended every two years. It is the optometrist who determines the frequency necessary for a complete examination according to your condition.
