Our Services at Yaletown EyeCare
Regular eye exams and eye health are essential to overall well-being. At Yaletown EyeCare, we offer comprehensive services designed to cater to all your eye care needs. Our team of skilled optometrists is dedicated to providing personalized, high-quality eye care solutions for patients of all ages.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Routine eye exams for adults are crucial for detecting and preventing vision problems and monitoring overall eye health. A typical adult eye exam at Yaletown EyeCare includes vision testing, an eye health assessment, and screening for common eye conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts.
For those with diabetes, regular diabetic eye exams play a vital role in managing eye health and preventing vision loss. Our specialized diabetic eye exams involve thorough assessments of the retina and blood vessels at the back of the eye, enabling early detection and management of diabetic retinopathy.
Children's vision develops rapidly during their early years, making it essential to schedule regular eye exams from a young age. Our optometrists conduct age-appropriate testing and assessments tailored to children's unique eye care needs, ensuring early detection and intervention for vision-related issues.
When an eye emergency occurs, timely and professional care is of the utmost importance. Yaletown EyeCare provides urgent eye care services for common eye emergencies, such as sudden vision loss, eye injuries, or severe eye pain. Please call our office for us to triage your appointment and see you in a timely manner. If we are not open, please seek urgent care at the closest emergency department.
Contact Lens Services
A contact lens exam is necessary for patients interested in contact lenses to ensure the right fit and prescription. Our optometrists will take precise measurements of your eyes and recommend the most suitable lens type, considering your lifestyle and specific vision requirements.
Eye Condition Management and Treatment
Amblyopia, or "lazy eye," is a common vision development disorder affecting children. If left untreated, it can lead to permanent vision loss. At Yaletown EyeCare, we offer various treatment options, such as patching therapy and spectacle therapy, to help effectively manage amblyopia. Please note, we do not offer vision therapy in office and we refer to local vision therapy clinics for treatment.
Cataracts are a leading cause of vision loss in older adults. Our optometrists can help monitor the progression of cataracts, provide recommendations for prevention, and refer patients to trusted specialists for cataract surgery when necessary.
Conjunctivitis, or "pink eye," can result from various causes, such as bacterial or viral infections, allergies, or irritants. Our optometrists can diagnose conjunctivitis and prescribe appropriate treatment options to alleviate symptoms and prevent complications.
Dry eye syndrome is a common condition causing discomfort, redness, and other symptoms. At Yaletown EyeCare, we offer thorough dry eye assessments and personalized management plans, which may include lifestyle changes, artificial tears, or other treatments to effectively alleviate dry eye symptoms.
Advanced Eye Care Services
Early detection and regular monitoring of glaucoma are essential in preventing vision loss from this progressive eye condition. Yaletown EyeCare provides comprehensive glaucoma assessment and management services, including measuring intraocular pressure, assessing optic nerve health, and monitoring visual field changes. We also work with local glaucoma specialist ophthalmologists for co-management.
Macular degeneration is an age-related eye condition that can lead to central vision loss. Our optometrists offer services designed to manage and monitor the progression of macular degeneration, including diagnostic imaging and nutritional counseling.
Refractive laser eye surgery is a popular vision correction option for those seeking an alternative to glasses or contact lenses. Our optometrists can provide Lasik consultations, preoperative assessments, and co-management during the postoperative period, ensuring a smooth and successful experience. We will recommend our most trusted surgeons in Vancouver.
Strabismus, or misaligned eyes, can cause various issues, such as double vision and poor depth perception. At Yaletown EyeCare, our optometrists will thoroughly evaluate the cause of strabismus and recommend appropriate treatment options, including vision therapy, eyeglasses, or surgery.
