La santé oculaire

Ocular health

A fundus exam is crucial for the health of your eyes. With different techniques of retinal and optic nerve observation, your optometrist can screen for hundreds of eye diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes, hypertension and eye tumours. It is therefore essential to have eyes exams regularly to detect these diseases at an early stage and avoid potentially serious complications.

Did you know that 80% of the acquisition of knowledge passes through the eyes ? It is therefore essential to monitor the visual health of your children from an early age. In fact, 1 out of 10 preschoolers has an eye problem that can affect their development. It is therefore recommended to monitor your child's eyes from birth and to consult an optometrist quickly in case of doubt.

The first ocular examination should be carried out around the age of 3 years, or even earlier in case of suspicion. The recommended schedule for eye examinations is as follows :

  • Around the age of 6 months in case of suspicion
  • Around the age of 3
  • Before school entry
  • Every year, from 6 to 18 years old

Regular examination by an optometrist can help catch eye problems before they become serious, which can improve children's quality of life and academic performance. In addition, myopia is an ever-increasing eye problem for childrens. An early examination can help to prevent and manage this kind of situation.
