Comprehensive Eye Exams from an Experienced Optometrist in Penticton

Our on-site independent Optometrist in Penticton has the knowledge and experience to conduct thorough eye exams to assess your vision and ocular health. Several eye diseases like macular degeneration, glaucoma, and cataract can be detected with eye exams, and early detection can lead to better management of the issue and quicker treatment. That’s why we suggest going for regular eye exams. Our eye clinic is fully equipped to check and evaluate the condition of your eyes. The eye exam is tailored to address the unique needs of each patient. We can recommend the most suitable options, like prescription glasses, corrective lenses, or even surgeries, based on the assessment results. Visit our onsite independent Optometrist for your eye and vision needs. They are fully committed to providing excellent patient care and ensuring that you receive quality treatment.


Expert Eye Care for Your Little Ones

At Dr. Specs Optical, our team of qualified professionals also provides specialized eye care services to ensure your child's eyes stay healthy and happy. Early detection and treatment of vision problems in children are crucial for their overall health and development. Undetected vision problems can lead to learning difficulties, behavioural issues, and permanent vision loss.

By bringing your child in for regular eye exams, you can ensure any vision problems are detected early and treated promptly. We aim to make pediatric eye care more accessible by offering comprehensive eye exams and prioritizing early detection and treatment of vision problems. Let us help your child see the world clearly – schedule an appointment today!

How Often Should I Get My Eyes Tested?

The frequency of eye examinations differs for each individual. Before scheduling an appointment, please check the stipulated frequency of eye exams, as the Canadian Association of Optometrists suggested.

  • Infants: once between 6 and 9 months of age
  • Preschool kids: at least once between 2 and 5 years of age
  • School-age children: once every year
  • Healthy adults: once every 2 years
  • Healthy adults who wear contact lenses: once a year
  • Senior adults: once a year


Apart from the above, people who are on medication, diagnosed with an eye disease, or have a family history of eye diseases or a systemic disease like diabetes should get their eyes tested once a year or as suggested by their optometrist. At Dr. Specs Optical, we provide personalized services to our clients. The on-site independent optometrist has valuable experience and expertise in diagnosing and treating all kinds of vision-related faults.
