For most individuals an OPTOMETRIST is the eye doctor of choice for routine eye health and vision examinations. Optometrists provide the majority of the primary eye care services in North America. They are trained to diagnose, treat, manage, and prevent diseases and disorders of the eye and visual system.

They also prescribe and provide a variety of treatment, including:
  • the dispensing and fitting of eyeglasses and contact lenses
  • vision therapy/low vision therapy
  • prescribing of topical medications to treat ocular surface disorders
  • removal of foreign bodies
  • referral to medical specialists for treatment of systemic disease or eye surgery
  • co-management of ocular diseases with ophthalmologists
Eye Health

Why do I need an eye examination if I have 20/20 vision?

Early diagnosis of eye disease is critical! Eye disease rarely has any symptoms, especially in the early stages. Glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy are just a few of the many reasons an annual eye examination is so important.

Importance of having your child’s vision checked

If your child is having trouble with their schoolwork, or complaining of tired eyes, there is a chance they could have problems with their vision. Many children will not complain about their vision, simply because they do not know what regular vision feels like. Dr. Uma Ratnasingam conducts Children’s Eye Exams in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere so your child will be comfortable and the doctor can get an accurate diagnosis.

Our eye examination is exceptionally thorough and designed to be a comprehensive check-up of the visual system and overall eye health.
