Maintain Healthy, Clear Vision
Your vision is an important element of your health, but sometimes you may not notice small changes in your eyes. Many eye diseases can arise without obvious symptoms, so we look for signs beyond the surface to help you maintain clear, comfortable vision.
Our dedicated eye doctors have the experience and knowledge to care for your eyes and help you manage eye diseases effectively.
Eye Exams for Early Detection
Some eye diseases are a natural part of the aging process, such as cataracts or dry eye, while conditions related to eye misalignment, like strabismus, may begin in childhood.
No matter your age, comprehensive eye exams can provide vital information to help preserve your vision and protect against vision-threatening conditions throughout your life. Early detection and treatment are your best defences against eye diseases. You can be proactive about your visual health by scheduling an eye exam today.Book Appointment
Examining Inside the Eye with OCT
Retinal imaging allows us to examine tissue beneath the surface of the eye, helping us detect early signs of eye disease.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) features ultra-wide retinal imaging, producing a 3D, cross-sectional view. The scan captures 82% or 200 degrees of the back of the eye, providing comprehensive, in-depth information to help us monitor changes to your eye health.
Seeing details beneath the surface of the eye also allows us to improve the accuracy of our care when managing or treating eye diseases.
Common Eye Diseases
When it comes to caring for your eyes, understanding the causes and risk factors for certain diseases can help you take action in preventing and managing eye disease. Your overall health, underlying conditions, and family history are all possible indications of your level of risk for eye diseases and conditions.
Over time, diabetes can cause changes in the retina, leading to diabetic retinopathy. These changes in the retina can deprive the eye of oxygen, and blindness may occur if left untreated. In its early stages, this disease does not show symptoms. Diabetic eye exams allow us to check the health of the retina and detect early signs, so we can offer treatment to help preserve your eyesight.
Glaucoma refers to a group of eye diseases due to optic nerve damage, often related to increased pressure in the eye. Typically, people don’t notice symptoms of glaucoma until their vision begins to deteriorate. Our optic nerve photography and laser imaging allow us to monitor changes in your optic nerve and potentially intervene before your vision is affected.
Cataracts may occur naturally with age and can be treated to restore visual clarity and improve your quality of life. They often happen due to natural changes in your eyes that come with age and cause blurry, clouded, or faded colour vision. Healthy lifestyle habits along with regular eye exams and care can lower your risk of cataracts. If you’re curious about prevention or treatment options, contact the Bayview Vision Care team.
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Another age-related eye disease is AMD, causing your central vision to blur. It’s one leading cause of vision loss for older adults and can come on slowly in some cases. There are treatments for some forms of AMD, depending on its stage of progression, but your best defense is early detection and prevention. Regular eye exams allow us to detect small changes in your vision that you may not notice right away.
Amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eyes) are 2 common conditions resulting from eye misalignment. Eyeglasses, contact lenses, and vision therapy are all possible treatment options for strabismus, while amblyopia is often treated by encouraging the use of the weaker eye. These conditions typically begin in childhood, so seeking early treatment is the best way to prevent potential complications and impacts on vision.
