Your Eye Doctors in Burnaby
Eye care experts specialize in understanding how the human eye functions, as well knowing how eye diseases and conditions affect your vision. Many eye diseases do not have obvious symptoms. Eye doctors know how risk factors and age affect vision over the course of time for both young and old. They also understand the ways that corrective lenses, including eyeglasses and contacts, can improve your vision and quality of life.
Our optometrist in Burnaby always takes the time to explain the results of your eye examination. Your eye doctor will also describe your various options and listen to your eye care concerns. Maintaining good eye health is a partnership, so we encourage you to ask all of your questions and make sure to share your health information. Your medical history could be crucial to monitoring, diagnosing and treating potential vision issues.
