Why Have An Eye Examination ?
Dr. Sher, Optometrist, Innisfil Eye Care, South Barrie, Answers
Most people no longer question why they should go for regular dental check-ups, yet many have no idea of the value of going for regular eye examinations. Dr Morrie Sher recommends annual eye examinations for everyone.
An eye exam doesn't just tell you how short- or long-sighted you are. It can also reveal eye conditions that may be more serious, and some of these conditions, if diagnosed early, can be prevented from developing further. An example of this is glaucoma.
Glaucoma is a disease that patients often don't notice in themselves until it's too late. If left undiagnosed and untreated, it can lead to serious sight loss or even blindness. Yet a simple eye test is all that's needed to detect glaucoma, and its development can easily be arrested and sight saved.
Glaucoma usually affects people over the age of 40, but that doesn't mean that younger people shouldn't go for eye tests.
How often you should go for a test varies with age. Optometrist, Dr. Sher recommends that children be taken for an eye examination by the age of three, but earlier if there has been any family history of vision problems or if a problem is suspected.
At Innisfil Eye Care, our facilities are very child friendly. Our state of the art computerized exam charts can display pictures rather than letters and cartoon movies can be shown for the child to watch while the doctor examines his/her eyes. Children find it a fun experience while also allowing for a more thorough exam by the doctor
At 40, you should have a full eye examination, with follow-up exams about every year . Age increases the risk of cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration, but remember, if detected early, the development of some diseases can be slowed or halted.
At 70 and beyond, you should have a full eye examination every year, even if you think your vision is good.

Dr. Morrie Sher, Innisfil Eye Care Talks About Vision Care
Caring for your eyes
Sun exposure and tanning
Canada is full of outdoors enthusiasts. Whether relaxing, exercising or just working in the sun, there are some important factors to keep in mind. This includes those who enjoy indoor tanning beds especially.
Indoors or out, people are exposing themselves to ultraviolet (UV) rays to an unprecedented degree. With the increased penetration of UV rays in our atmosphere today, outdoor exposure is not so different from the UV-rich, indoor tanning beds that have been the subject of much debate.
This is true of cloudy days as much as sunny ones. Don't forget that water and snow environments, as well as higher elevations, also demand UV protection.
Significant exposure to these UV rays can damage your retina, cornea and can cause cataracts or macular degeneration. Ensure that you wear UV-protected sunglasses or a wide-brimmed hat when outdoors for a prolonged time. Sterilized protective goggles are essential for any duration of indoor tanning. In any environment, closing your eyes is no protection from UV, and there is no substitute for proper UV-blocking eyewear.

Regular Eye Examinations are Crucial for children as eye exams can detect health problems and conditions such as a turned or lazy eye in the early stages. These conditions may be treated successfully if an optometrist diagnoses them early in a child's life; if they go undetected, they can lead to permanent sight loss.
Your child's vision is vital in developing skills such as:
More than 80% of learning is done through the eyes
Children with poor vision often find it difficult to focus on their work and may be misdiagnosed as having a learning or behavioural disability
One in six children has a vision problem significant enough to impair their ability to learn.
