Schedule your appointment with our optometrist in East Gwillimbury, ON today!
If you think the only reason to visit an optometrist is because you have having trouble with your vision or your eyes, you might be surprised to learn that there are many other reasons why you should see an optometrist every year. At Dr. Miller & Dr. Tilis Family Optometry in East Gwillimbury, ON, we offer optometrist services from pediatric to those golden years to ensure that your eye health is the best it can be.
Pediatric optometrist visits are a vital part of catching various ocular conditions as young as 6 months of age. Our optometrist will check your infant’s retina, optic nerve and ocular muscles. We want to rule out hyperopia, myopia, astigmatism and large differences between the right and left eye. Another important time to consider taking your child to an optometrist is before they begin school. Vision issues can put your child behind when they cannot clearly see the teacher and presented materials. A child who has had vision issues all along does not realize that their vision is impaired, so it is imperative that you have their vision checked even if they do not exhibit any signs of a problem. Keep in mind that children are covered for an annual exam from birth to age 19.
Your vision is precious. Don’t leave it to chance. See an optometrist regularly throughout your life, preferably at least every two years, or every year if you wear glasses or contacts or have any vision or eye health problems. Call us to schedule your next appointment. We have convenient evening and weekend hours if you need them. We treat you like our family!
