What Our Patients Are Saying...

Ask Our Doctors a Question...

What is the examination like to determine if someone has dry eyes?

A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy. More about Dry Eyes...

What are the typical treatments for dry eyes?

There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye. More about Dry Eyes...

Are there any recommendations to help people avoid dry eye?

Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure. More about Dry Eyes...

Why Eye Exams Are More Important Than Ever

Although COVID is still present in our lives, we are slowly returning to a semi-normal life. With so many disruptions this past year, the one thing that should be consistent is your child's back-to-school eye evaluations.

As of September 1, OHIP-covered patients will lose access to eye care. This means kids 19 and under, adults 65 and over, as well as diabetics cannot be seen by their optometrist because the government will not step up.

Optometrists in Ontario are redirecting all OHIP patients to their family doctor, their ophthalmologist (if they have one), or the ER if it is an emergency. ⁣⁣At this time, we are still booking non-OHIP patients which includes people 20-64 years old. ⁣⁣We are hoping for a fast resolution from this job action, and we would appreciate your help by visiting www.saveeyecare.ca !!

All you have to do is fill in your name and postal code and it will generate a letter to your MPP. The more letters the government receives, the faster we can hope for this to end! #saveeyecare
