Regular eye health exams are crucial to help prevent eye disease and to ensure that eye diseases are diagnosed and treated in a timely manner. Seniors over the age of 65 have the highest risk of vision loss and should be seen at least annually, and as frequently as three to six months if there is eye disease present. Alberta Health covers eye examinations for Seniors.
Preventative strategies are also important to prevent vision loss. Your doctor will discuss nutrition and lifestyle factors that may prevent or reduce the risk of eye disease. Modern diagnostic imaging equipment has revolutionized the way we diagnose and manage diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration. At Mission Eye Care, we are committed to using the most modern technology for early detection and treatment of eye disease.
