At Cordova Bay Optometry, we offer a full scope of comprehensive eye care services. Our office welcomes new patients, is wheelchair accessible, and is equipped to care for patients of all ages.
Comprehensive Eye Exams
Routine eye exams are an important part of preventative medicine, regardless of you age, health or comfort with your current vision. During a comprehensive eye exam, your optometrist will not only determine your specific prescription for eyeglasses and/or contact lenses, but will also assess your eyes for common eye diseases, the function and accuracy of your eye muscles, and screen for ocular indicators of your overall health.
As we value complete and thorough vision care, as well as the importance of patient education, please allow for up to an hour for your full exam.
We offer emergency services for immediate and urgent eye care needs. If you are experiencing an infection, injury, or symptoms including, but not limited to, flashes of light, sudden onset of floaters, sudden blur or loss of vision, sudden haloes please call our office at (778) 587-3937.
Please note if you are experiencing an eye emergency outside of our office hours, please contact your local emergency room or walk-in clinic, depending on the severity of your emergency.
Pediatric Eye Exams
Classroom learning is estimated to be ~80% visual so a comprehensive eye exam will help insure your child not only has good ocular health, but also no visual barrier to learning. While a vision screening tests the ability to see clearly at a distance, a comprehensive eye exam looks at all aspects of a child’s vision function, including their eyes' ability to team together, accurately maintain focus, and their overall comfort and health. 20/20 vision doesn't mean perfect eye health!
Patients who have diabetes should have at minimum yearly eye exams as they have a higher risk of developing certain eye diseases, such a cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. If you have diabetes, be sure to tell your optometrist during your appointment.
Your comprehensive eye exam at Cordova Bay Optometry includes a comprehensive screening for glaucoma, a group of eye diseases that leads to degeneration of the optic nerve and is the second leading cause of blindness in the world. Glaucoma is often referred to as "the silent vision thief" as many forms slowly damage the eyes and cause irreparable harm before a person can perceive any vision loss. For that reason, routine examinations are recommended for early detection and prevention.
Dry Eye Therapy
Dry Eye Syndrome is a complex multi-factorial disease of the tears and ocular surface that results in symptoms that can significantly affect vision, comfort, and ocular health. During your eye exam we will help identify and manage the environmental, social, and biological factors that can lead to dry eyes.
Studies show myopia is becoming more common among children. Unfortunately, higher levels of myopia can increase your chances of having some eye problems later in life, like cataracts, glaucoma and retinal detachments. While myopia in children cannot be reversed, there are proven methods to help slow its progression, protecting a child’s eye health in the future.
Contact Lens Fittings
Contact lenses, if not fitted well, can cause serious harm to your overall eye health. A proper contact lens fitting will determine the right material, modality, curvature, thickness, diameter, correction and contact lens care/maintenance program for your specific vision needs. Let our eye care professionals help you reach your goals of clear and comfortable vision free from glasses.
We offer consultations as well as pre and post-operative co-management care for such procedures as Laser Refractive Surgery and Cataracts.
