Medical Eye Evaluations in Edmonton, AB

When most people think of eye exams, the first thought that comes to mind is whether they’re going to get glasses or not. While an eye doctor can check your eyes and determine whether you require prescription glasses to attain better vision, eye exams are more than just that. At Iconic Eye Care, we provide medical eye evaluations, which are thorough medical checks that are crucial in the diagnosis and treatment of ocular and general health issues.

An eye doctor may be able to detect signs of disease in your body just by looking at your eyes. When you come in for a medical eye evaluation, our eye doctor in Edmonton, AB, will not only be looking to see whether you have perfect vision. Instead, the doctor will also be checking for signs and symptoms of cancer, diabetes, stroke, and high blood pressure, all of which can present themselves in the eyes.

Who Needs Medical Eye Evaluations?

At Iconic Eye Care, we encourage the community in Alberta and beyond to schedule routine comprehensive eye examinations annually.

Dr. Guy Ambrosio at Iconic Eye Care has the proper knowledge, tools and equipment necessary to diagnose, treat, prescribe medications, and refer to a specialist if needed.

Visits for the diagnose and management of dry, eye infections, eye injuries, foreign objects in the eye, and sudden changes in vision are covered. Additionally, monitoring for diabetes issues, glaucoma, retinal disease and cataracts, including post operative care are also provided.
