EMERGENCY EYE CARE
Sudden vision loss, eye injuries or eye infections are serious problems. Our doctors offer emergency services to get you back on track (even after hours). If you're experiencing an eye emergency, contact us immediately at (519) 527-1240.
A comprehensive eye health examination includes a detailed evaluation of the inner and outer structures of your eye and visual system, while also providing you with a glasses and/or contact lens prescription. An annual eye health examination is an important part of preventative health care. Think of an annual eye health exam as a physical for your eyes. During each eye examination our doctors check for conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, retinal detachment, and macular degeneration. Other health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and various types of cancer are commonly detected on routine eye health examinations.
We are committed to staying current with the latest technologies in the industry. Our automated computerized instruments provide a higher standard of eye care for our patients, allowing for the early detection of many conditions of the front and back of the eye.

CHILDREN'S EYE HEALTH
We believe that a great education begins with great vision. The Ontario Association of Optometrists recommends that a child’s first eye exam be at six months of age, three years of age and every year thereafter.
Uncorrected vision or an underlying eye heath condition can affect your child’s social, learning and athletic abilities. Eye care for children differs from that of adults in that children do not always notice their vision is blurry, and therefore they do not report any problems. Our doctors always encourage early detection through yearly eye examinations. Early detection of eye health and vision related problems is very important to ensure your child does not develop any irreversible vision loss in the future.
Sanderson Optometry has developed a reputation for providing fun and informative comprehensive eye health examinations for children of all ages. By maintaining optimal eye health and vision, we can prevent more serious eye conditions from occurring in the future and help your child reach their maximum potential.
