Eye Exams in Okanagan, British Columbia

Dr. Zak speaks often to his patients in the Oliver area about the importance of regular comprehensive eye exams for children and adults.

For children, keeping up with regular eye exams is important for their overall academic development. Poor sight can give your child a decided disadvantage in school, since double vision, an inability to see examples at the front of class, and other disadvantages can hinder their ability to comprehend math, learn to read and write and generally discourage them from learning. Early detection of childhood eye conditions such as strabismus and amblyopia are extremely important, since these conditions can worsen if they are not treated in early childhood, and it is possible that your child may eventually lose the use of one of his/her eyes without proper and timely treatment.

For adults, regular comprehensive eye exams are important to rule out the development of potentially harmful eye conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration. These two condition are specifically worrisome since they can come on without any noticeable symptoms and can steal your vision away before you ever know there is anything wrong. Regular comprehensive eye exams with Dr. Zak will help detect these and other conditions before they can do any significant damage.

Dr. Zak is also happy to serve the Oliver community by helping to relieve symptoms of computer vision syndrome. This eye condition effects those who spend extended amounts of time looking at the lighted screen of a computer or other electronic device. Symptoms include headache and eyestrain. Dr. Zak will be able to help you by advising you on the best way to end your computer vision issues and may also be able to prescribe special computer vision glasses for you to use while on the computer.
