What to Expect at Your Next Eye Exam Appointment in Kelowna
When was the last time that you had a comprehensive eye exam? If you can’t remember, it’s been too long!
At Sun Valley Optometry, we believe that you should have an eye examination test every 1-2 years depending on your risk level.
We feel that your eye exam should be as unique as you are. Instead of having an eye exam be this mundane chore, we hope to bring education and explanation into the exam to exceed every expectation.
People can often put eye exams on the backburner, but it’s extremely important for your eye health to make these exams a priority.
In this blog post, we will discuss what happens during the eye exam appointment and what to bring to the exam.
First off, let us explain who we are. Dr. Mat Broschak is the proud owner of Sun Valley Optometry, which has been serving Kelowna for more than ten years. Dr. Broschak completed his Doctor of Optometry training at the Illinois College of Optometry in 2005.
He has a focus of primary eye care for all age groups with a special interest in dry eye management and contact lenses. Most importantly, he enjoys educating his patients, dispelling myths and making sure feel like they have a very good understanding of all parts of their eyes and visual system.
Eye exam appointment
Sun Valley Optometry believes that prevention is the best course of action for eye health. We are proud to offer Optos Retinal Imaging technology. This advanced technology helps detect early onset of a wide range of ailments and diseases. It offers a wide-field view of the back of the eye that often replaces having to have the pupils dilated with eye drops and offers an unprecedented view for our doctors which aids in the diagnosis of eye disease.
Whether it’s preventing fatigue on the eyes from an outdated prescription or preventing various types of eye disease like glaucoma or macular degeneration, we want to give you the information you need to make the right eye health decisions.
This is why we offer preventative eye care. Visually related headaches, eye strain and itchy watery eyes can all be fixed before they become a problem with the right counselling.
The second type of comprehensive eye exam we offer is surrounding eye care emergencies. Whether it’s red eye, an infection or any other type of emergency, MSP will fully cover your appointment in Kelowna and we will see promptly as emergencies cannot wait.
Like we mentioned above, Dr. Mat Broschak has a special interest in dry eye management. He understands that many dry eye issues have to do with underlying medical conditions and it’s important to get to the root of the problem.
We use a holistic approach to be able to offer solutions you didn’t even know exist.
And lastly, our eye examination tests focus on the unique eyewear needs people have. We know that eyeglasses aren’t all the same. Some people need lenses to enhance their vision at the computer, for sports or for many other reasons.
We are able to work personally with you and your desired eye care needs.
Once we finish the comprehensive eye exam appointment, we will give you your prescription and in partnership with Pearle Vision, provide a number of fashionable, high-tech eyewear options for you.
