Eye Diseases Could Cause Vision Loss

Vision is a gift, and we’re proud to be the team you choose to help preserve it.

We’ve spent years helping Albertans care for their eye health and vision, and we’re happy to customize management plans unique to your needs and concerns.

Eye diseases are one of the most important reasons to have an eye exam. Many eye diseases have no cure, and several can develop without early symptoms.

By detecting these problems as early as possible, we can help you preserve your vision. Start today by booking an appointment.

Factors That Increase the Risk of Eye Disease

Aging can increase the risk of several eye conditions and diseases, making regular eye exams all the more crucial as you grow older.

Several other factors can also increase the risk of potential eye health problems. These include diabetes, smoking, too much UV exposure, poor diet, and lack of exercise. Some eye diseases can also be hereditary.

Eye Exams Can Help Us Detect Eye Diseases

Even if you believe your eyes are currently healthy, regular eye exams detect possible issues before they cause permanent vision loss.

We use an array of diagnostic technologies to look for eye diseases during your eye exam.

We tailor every eye exam we perform to your unique health situation, so we may use a combination of technologies and techniques to get a comprehensive view of your vision.

When you come in for comprehensive eye care, we review your full health history and your vision needs. We’ll measure your depth perception and colour vision, assess the length and shape of your eye, and digitally image your retina and other internal eye structures.

Perhaps the best part of our exam process is measuring your eye pressure with unique “no air puff” technology.

Our strategies include using Goldmann applanation tonometry, iCare tonometry, ocular coherence tomography, and fundus photography. These technologies can help us detect signs of glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetes-related eye diseases.

By being thorough, we can give you accurate and useful information so you get treatment and care that works for you.


Cataracts are common in older adults, and untreated cases could lead to blindness.

As you age, proteins in your eye’s lens break down, causing a cataract. Eventually, the eye can develop a hazy or milky discolouration that can obstruct your vision over time.

Glasses and contacts can help correct vision problems related to early cataract development, but cataract surgery is the only way to treat the issue.

Glaucoma is a group of eye diseases that affect your optic nerve, a part of your eye responsible for carrying information collected by your eyes to your brain. Some versions of the disease may develop slowly, but others may cause emergency symptoms.

We can help detect glaucoma by measuring your intraocular pressure (IOP) or observing your optic disc during an eye exam.

Please visit our Glaucoma Eye Exams page for more information on this disease and how we can help manage it.

Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is among the most common eye diseases adults over 55 can develop.

AMD affects a part of the eye known as the macula, responsible for providing central vision. AMD can make it difficult to read, see fine details, or even drive as it develops.

There are 2 types of AMD: dry AMD and wet AMD.

Dry AMD thins your macula over time, possibly due to the development of a lipid called drusen under your macula.

Wet AMD occurs when abnormal blood vessels form under your macula, which can break and leak fluids. Wet AMD may also cause emergency symptoms.

Diabetes can increase the risk of diseases like diabetic retinopathy and diabetic macular edema.

Both of these diseases can develop with no early symptoms but could lead to permanent vision loss over time. We can detect them by observing your retina and macula during a comprehensive eye exam.

Please visit our Diabetic Eye Exams page for more information on these diseases.

Dry Eye Technology


Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is a common issue that can lead to dry eye disease. It occurs when blockages form in the meibomian glands.These glands line the upper and lower eyelid margins and are responsible for producing the oil content in your tear film.

The iLux is a handheld, in-office treatment we may recommend to help treat your MGD. The iLux can help to clear the blockages in your oil producing glands by applying gentle heat and pressure along your eyelid margins. This will allow these oil glands to return to supporting your tear film with oils.

Please visit our Dry Eye Disease Consultation page for more information on this device and dry eyes.

We Develop Management Strategies Custom to You
