1) How often should I have my eyes examined?
Regular eye exams are necessary in order to diagnose vision and ocular health conditions in a timely manner, and to aid in prevention of these conditions. A check for glasses prescriptions is a small part of the exam as well. How often you will need to receive an eye exam will depend largely on your individual eye care needs and medical history.  After your initial examination, your doctor of optometry will help you determine when you should return.  General guidelines, however, are in place to assist you in determining follow-up examination frequency.

Frequency for high-risk patients will be determined by the examining doctor of optometry based on the findings at your initial examination.  Some factors which may indicate high risk are:
  • Infants and toddlers and preschool: Premature birth; low birth weight; mother's health during pregnancy; family medical history; strabismus; or congenital eye disorders.
  • School age: children experiencing difficulty at school; children exhibiting reading and/or learning disabilities.
  • Adult: diabetes; hypertension; family history of glaucoma; those whose work is visually demanding or who face eye hazards.
  • Older adult: diabetes; hypertension; family history of glaucoma; those taking systemic medication with ocular side effects.
2) Who is examining my eyes?
At Nobe Eyecare Associates, our focus is eye health. You will be examined by an Optometrist and can be assured that you will received a thorough examination. We work with the finest surgeons in the area and listen to your preferences before selecting the appropriate eye surgeon (Ophthalmologists). The eye chart at the family doctor’s office or at the motor vehicle registry are merely screenings that make up less than 5% of a comprehensive doctorate level eye exam.

Eye exam frequency

3) I don’t have any eye or vision problems. Do I need to get my eyes
Even people that have 20/20 vision or don’t report any visual problems
can develop eye disease and go blind. Comprehensive eye exams
performed by doctorate level practitioners will help you determine your
risk factors. In fact, there are many people that end up suffering from
serious eye disease despite not needing glasses. Also, there are
many people that are completely dependent on glasses and live a life
without any eye disease. One’s ability to see without glasses is not
an indicator of eye health.
4) How do I Know if I got a good exam?

The doctors are here to serve you. If you feel you were not listened to or rushed it may be best to find try a different one of our doctors.
Some optical stores make the claim that a doctor (often in a remote
jurisdiction) can interpret findings performed by people who have not completed university level training. This position is NOT supported by medical evidence and not deemed appropriate by the Alberta College of Optometrists or the Alberta College of Physicians or Surgeons. Obviously there are parts of the eye that cannot be examined throughly. Please ensure that you are being examined by a Doctor who is physically present and do not risk your eye health to optical shops that take these shortcuts! Losing vision permanently is not worth saving 20 minutes to skip your routine comprehensive Doctor level eye examination. These shops sometimes use confusing terminology to de-emphasize eye health hoping that will sell you glasses or contact lenses. The terms used include “vision test”, “computerized vision test”, “eye health screening”, or “eye test”.

5) When should I go to the emergency room?
Emergency room visits are accessible outside our office hours. If you
visit an emergency room to have something removed from your
eyes, a follow-up appointment with an eye doctor is essential.
Often when a foreign body is removed it can often leave permanent
scars which result in permanently reduced vision if the eye does
not heal properly. We prescribe the medications necessary to facilitate
faster healing times and to reduce complications. Many times an
emergency room visit results in the calling of an on-call Doctor and an
appointment in his/her office the next day. At Nobe Eyecare Associates,
we make allowances in our schedules to accommodate emergencies
daily and wait times are significantly less than the emergency room.
Most emergencies are treated within an hour.
