Living with bad eyesight can cause many problems and to make matters worse, the health of your eyes can affect the health of your body. Our optometrists at West Coast Optical understand this and strive to provide comprehensive and quality services to those looking to improve their eyesight and health.
What We Look For
Our team can check your eyes for a number of problems including focusing problems, nearsightedness, farsightedness and crossed eyes, just to name a few. We also screen for more serious problems including eye disease like diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma. Although most people are under the misconception that optometry is only focused on sight, we actually diagnose many kinds of problems connected to eye health such as diabetes, liver disease and high blood pressure.
Improving Eyesight, Improving Life
Using our services to improve your eyesight will do more than just improve your vision – it will help increase the quality of your life. In fact, research has shown that vision is connected to learning, meaning living with improper vision can actually have a negative effect on your brain. Regular check-ups and appointments are the best way to keep your eyes, and in turn your overall health, in peak shape.
Standard eyeglasses are what most people opt for when they come to our office and with the variety of frames and lenses on the market, you’ll have plenty to choose from to ensure that you get the treatment that you need.
Anti-reflective eyeglasses reflect 99.5 percent of light into your eyes, increasing the quality of your vision in low-light conditions and allowing for better visibility. Furthermore, they minimize eyestrain and offer plenty of great looks for increased aesthetic appeal. Although they are higher priced than standard lenses, our team highly recommends them for those willing to make the investment.
For those not interested in wearing glasses, contact lenses are a great choice that can give you the ability to better your vision while remaining comfortable. There are many kinds of contact lenses on the market for all kinds of people, whether you want to wear them all the time or on select occasions.
Taking the steps to improve your eyesight is a great choice and our optometrists at West Coast Optical can help you ensure that you take the right ones. With our variety of corrective options and a team that is dedicated to giving you the best care possible, you can rest assured that your sight is in good hands. If you reside in the Surrey, Langley, White Rock or Aldergrove areas and have any questions or concerns regarding the health of your eyes, give us a call at 604.533.1171.
