Glasses Prescriptions in Edmonton, AB

Prescription glasses help people who are born with vision problems, or who develop vision problems later in life, to see better. Whether you’re myopic (short-sighted) or hypermetropic (far-sighted), glasses can turn your life around by allowing you to see clearly, thus making everyday life possible.

For children, visual learning is an essential component of development. If you suspect or think your child is struggling with their eyesight, it’s crucial to get them checked by our optometrist.

Do You Need Glasses?

Many people who are born with perfect vision may develop problems later in their life. Eyesight can deteriorate over time as a result of many factors include genetic factors, lifestyle, and occupation hazards—e.g., if you use computers heavily at work, you might develop eye problems.

Book a comprehensive eye evaluation with our optometrist in Edmonton, AB, if you notice any of the following signs:

  • Blurred and double vision
  • Eyestrain
  • Trouble seeing at night
  • Unexplained headaches
  • Persistent squinting, without which you’re unable to see clearly
  • Seeing halos around objects

Unfortunately, many people—children, especially—don’t always know that they require corrective eyewear, sometimes until it’s very late.

Parents should keep an eye out for signs that their children are struggling with their vision. Such symptoms include squinting, tilting the head to get a better view, or constant rubbing of the eyes.

The Eye See Eye Learn program gives free glasses to kindergarten-aged children in Alberta. Call Iconic Eye Care today if you’d like to learn more about this program, or our services.

What Happens During Your Eye Exam at Iconic Eye Care?

Our optometrist will examine you thoroughly before writing a glasses prescription. During this examination, our eye doctor will be looking out for short-sightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism (errors in the curvature of the cornea), and presbyopia (age-related long-sightedness).

The optometrist will also look for signs indicative of glaucoma, macular degenerations, and retinopathy, among others.

Besides prescribing corrective eyewear, our doctor will also advise you on ways to take better care of your eyes to prevent eye strain. Additionally, Dr. Guy Ambrosio will make recommendations on vision solutions to improve your visual performance for everything from work to play.
