Children's Eye Exams
It is recommended that a child should see an eye care professional at six months of age and then annually. The Saskatchewan Association of Optometrists strongly recommends annual eye excams for school age kids as well. Saskatchewan Health provides one standard eye exam for all children under the age of 18.
Senior Eye Exam
Vision loss in seniors is becoming more frequent. The most common cause of vision loss is glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. It is recommended that our senior patients (60-65) have an annual eye exam to insure any conditions are detected as early as possible to be proactive with their eye health.
Many vision problems are distinctive to diabetics and can lead to blindness if not treated. Saskatchewan Health provides one full comprehensive eye exam for all diabetics once a year under the Saskatchewan Health Card.
