Comprehensive Eye Examinations in South Calgary Area

Did you know that our sense of sight is what we use most? This is precisely why eye care is critical. To combat eye-related issues, we offer eye examinations in South Calgary. Regular eye tests can help check how well you can see and understand how healthy your eyes are, thus helping you to identify problems early on.  
 
Sometimes, eye conditions can go unnoticed and may aggravate if detected later. It is advisable to get your eyes tested every two years and more often if advised by your optometrist. 

Check More than Your Vision

At Focus West Optometry, we provide expert clinical care and recommend everyone have their eyes tested to detect any signs of eye diseases that can lead to vision loss. When you walk in for your eye exams in our clinic in South Calgary, our optometrist will conduct a detailed consultation and ask you questions regarding your health condition to provide you with a suitable eye treatment. We'll review your case history and measure your vision's quality, including eye movements, your ability to adjust focus and see depth and colour. Should we detect anything, we'll recommend contact lenses, exercises or perhaps even eye surgery, depending on your eye condition. 
  
We know an eye test can be overwhelming for some - especially if it's your first. At Focus West Optometry, we've made the process as welcoming and as friendly as possible. Our optometrist will conduct an in-depth assessment of your eye health and examine your eyes for potentially harmful conditions. 

 

At Focus West Optometry, we test for:

  • Visual acuity
  • Eye muscle strength
  • Visual field
  • Retinal health
  • Colour vision
  • Glaucoma

 

When should you visit Focus West Optometry for your eye examination in South Calgary?

It is important to regularly monitor your eye health regularly. Visit our optometrist if you notice symptoms such as:

  • Squinting
  • Itchiness
  • Tired eyes or headaches
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Blurred vision
  • Blackouts

Eye Exams for Children 
 

Many think that eye exams are only for adults and seniors. However, eye exams are equally important for children, beginning at six months. Eye exams ensure the healthy development of your child's eyes and ensure there are no vision problems that could affect their life. 
 
If your child does develop vision problems, eye exams lead to early identification so that we can take the necessary action on time. Through their school years, children might develop myopia, which eye exams can help identify, and we can provide your child with the best-fit glasses according to each condition

 

Eye Exams for Seniors 
 

Seniors must have regular eye exams because they are at an increased risk of developing eye diseases. Eye exams help in the early identification of these diseases and enable us to take early preventative action.  
 
Seniors over the age of 65 are prone to developing vision loss. Eye exams help us devise preventive strategies to help you avoid vision loss. 

 

 

 

What Happens after your Eye Test?

Our practitioner will provide you with your optical prescription. If required, you will be given a statement for further tests to detect any disorders that may affect your visual system. Should you need referrals to specialists for post-operative care, we can help with that too. 


In addition to treating adults, we can conduct eye tests for infants, grade schoolers, and even grandparents because our aim is to help you achieve optimal eye health.
