Myopia is becoming more prevalent in children, and with the current trend, it’s forecasted by the World Health Organization that by 2050, more than half of the world’s population will be myopic. Here at U Optical, we acknowledge the current myopic prevalence in children in Canada and are prepared to combat and control this global epidemic. We do this by identifying the patients at risk and acting promptly to slow the progression of this condition. The onset of myopia can start as early as six years old. Therefore it is essential to identify myopia in individuals as soon as possible. Once identified, our optometrists will discuss different treatment options that are available and best suited for you or your child. Some options include soft contact lenses, eyeglasses with myopia-controlling lenses, and prescription eye drops. Call or contact us online for more information about myopia control and to schedule an eye exam for you or your child.
Certain eye conditions, such as astigmatism, myopia, hyperopia, and keratoconus, can make it difficult to wear contact lenses. At U Optical, we want contact lenses to be an option for everyone, which is why we offer a wide variety of specialty lenses, including:
We also stock a large selection of disposable-soft contact lenses available in various popular brands.
Hundreds of thousands of Canadians have low vision, a condition characterized by a vision level that is 20/70 or worse. Low vision can be corrected with specialty eyewear, medical treatment, or surgery. Unlike complete blindness, those with low vision have a limited degree of useful sight but experience challenges with certain everyday activities such as reading, recognizing faces, and distinguishing colors. At U Optical, we will conduct a comprehensive examination to measure your remaining vision and continue working with you to identify treatment options.
For children under 19 years, OHIP covers a comprehensive eye exam annually and any follow-up checkups that may be required. For adults between 20 to 64 years, it does not cover comprehensive assessments. Our optometrists can help ascertain whether you qualify, depending on your condition. When it comes to seniors over 65, OHIP includes an annual, comprehensive eye exam and follow-ups as required.
General eye checkups can help ensure your eyewear prescription is up to date, and your eyes are healthy. As per the Canadian Association of Optometrists, children and seniors should get their eyes checked every year. Adults should opt for comprehensive eye exams every two years.
Most eye problems are silent and do not have any symptoms in the early stages. When you schedule an eye exam in Vaughan or Scarborough with us, our optometrists will look for the signs of common eye diseases in addition to determining your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses.
