Urban Optique is proud to offer industry-leading comprehensive eye examination services. By combining cutting-edge technology with a two stage full-service approach, we strive to supply top-end resources and education to keep your eyes at full health through your entire life.
We encourage patients to schedule exams that agree with their busy schedules and offer appointments during weekday evenings until 9:00 PM, and Saturday availability. Call the location nearest you and ask about specific hours of operation for eye examinations.
An eye health examination will provide information on all aspects of your visual health and illustrate a complete picture of the well-being of your eyes. The exam will measure eye coordination, depth perception, peripheral awareness, focusing ability, colour discrepancy, binocular vision, eye muscle alignment, and emerging health concerns.
The Alberta government covers all eye examinations for people under the age of 19 and 65 and over. Most corporate and personal health benefit insurance plans allow for eye health exams every 1-2 years and cover the costs associated with this necessary health procedure.
Eyes should be checked by a professional optometrist every 12-24 months to ensure sustained eye health and identify the development of eye conditions in their early stages.
People over the age of 60 or who have been diagnosed with diabetes, glaucoma, cataracts, or other eye disease should increase the frequency of eye health exams to monitor effects of the disease.
Eye exams at Urban Optique typically last between 30 and 60 minutes. We do our best to respect patient’s schedules and perform a comprehensive exam without sacrificing optometrical integrity. Ocular well-being is paramount to a healthy lifestyle and should be addressed on a regular basis.
