All of us agree with what our eyes mean to us – what they represent and how fragile they are at the same time. From the moment we start perceiving the world around us, vision is the biggest contributor to all we understand and recognize. While we go about our business, there is no telling of the innumerable dangers all around. These may range from dust and allergens to chemicals and metallic components.
If you find yourself in a situation where something has penetrated your eye, do not try to deal with it yourself. You could be doing more harm than good. Instead, get the help of a specialist for the relevant treatment immediately. Summit Eyecare Centre has experienced optometrists you can depend on for eye injury treatment in Kamloops! We do everything to make our patients comfortable and offer services on all things related to vision.
We also do our best in urgent and emergency situations, where the health of the eyes is at risk, to see you on the same day. Some cases that require an emergency eye exam include, but are not limited to:
During a full eye exam, a Summit Eyecare optometrist will determine your level of vision (visual acuity), your binocularity (such as depth perception and eye muscle coordination) as well as the correction needed to improve your vision (including glasses, contact lenses or vision therapy). The external and internal health of the eyes will also be thoroughly examined for signs of systemic disease and ocular conditions, including cataracts, glaucoma and diabetes, among others.
From a fun and relaxed exam setting, to a great selection of children’s eyewear, Summit Eyecare works hard to ensure your child has a positive experience. It is recommended that children have their eyes examined on a yearly basis. Whether you need immediate eye injury treatment in Kamloops or just some insight on how to keep your eyes safe, you can call us or drop by at our clinic!
