Are you concerned about your eye health? Do you want to enjoy great eyesight for many years to come? If so, you need to prevent eye problems before they start. When you visit us for an eye exam in Langley, we'll assess your eye health to evaluate your eyes and determine the best type of treatment for you.
At Langley Optometry Clinic, our friendly optometrists will carefully perform your eye examination. We're trained to identify a wide range of eye diseases and disorders. Early detection is crucial, so make sure you schedule routine eye exams regardless of your age. Eye examinations for children are also very important because often times they don't even realize their vision is affected. Look out for squinting, frequent eye rubbing, sensitivity to light, poor hand-eye coordination, and holding reading materials too close to their eyes.
Eye Exams for Children
It is always important for your child to undergo regular eye exams. Even if you don’t see symptoms, your young child may have a vision problem. Be sure to take your child for a routine medical check-up. The optometrists at Langley Optometry Clinic perform expert assessment of your child’s eye health and vision care needs. Learn about eye exams and how to protect your child’s eyesight. You can depend on us for a range of eye care services and products such as:
Emergency eye care

Learn More About Our Eye Exam, Available to Surrey & Langley Residents
Annual eye exams are a critical part of maintaining your eyesight. Visit our clinic when it's time for your eye exam, as we are easily accessible for Surrey and Langley residents. In about a half hour, your optometrist checks for:
Visual acuity and prescriptions
Binocular function and depth perception
Eye health—including checking for:
Retinal problems such as macular degeneration
These important tests determine how good your eyesight is and whether you require corrective lenses. This information helps us determine what kind of treatment best fits your needs. Please keep in mind that vision screenings, like those done at driver's licence registries and by your family doctor, should not take the place of an in-depth eye exam. These short screenings usually only test for blurred vision, muscle coordination and common diseases. A comprehensive eye exam is performed by an eye-care specialist and looks into every aspect of your vision.
As you get older, it’s best not to skip your annual eye exams. Certain eye diseases and disorders only develop as you get older. Eye exams also provide valuable signals to your doctor about the state of your overall health. Eye exams have been shown to reveal the subtle early symptoms of mental illnesses, brain tumours, aneurysms, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, high blood pressure, and Vitamin A deficiencies.

Follow-Up Examinations at Langley Optometry Clinic
Each of our patients needing a follow-up examination is examined according to their age and individual needs. We recommend people under 19 and over 65 years of age to have a yearly eye examination. People between 19 and 65 years of age should have an eye exam at least once every two years.
Our optometrists offer pre- and post-operative evaluations for people who have had corrective refractive eye surgery. We also offer our patients with follow-up examinations for post-cataract surgeries and the monitoring of eye conditions being treated. Some of our patients requiring a follow-up evaluation include patients who have had cataract surgery, patients being treated for glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathy, dry-eye syndrome (determined by the severity and complications) and numerous other retinal and ocular pathological conditions.
Some patients suffering acute problems such as recurring conjunctivitis, iritis, blepharitis , episcleritis, chalazion, trichiasis and hordeolum, among others, may require follow-up examinations depending on the severity.
It is important to note that diabetics should have a yearly examination by an optometrist in order to monitor for diabetic retinopathy. Contact Langley Optometry Clinic today to make an appointment.
Laser Eye Surgery
Laser refractive surgery can now correct most prescriptions, including myopia (near-sightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), and astigmatism. It works best for people under the age of 45, as we often need reading glasses (presbyopia) when we reach our forties and single-vision laser correction does not correct for this as well. However, there is now a presbyopic laser treatment that may aid the correction of near and distance vision.
There are advantages and disadvantages to the procedures and these will vary for each individual; thus, it is best to discuss them with your optometrist. If you are interested in correcting your vision through surgical methods, our doctors will help you to understand all of the advantages and disadvantages of the currently accepted procedures. If we feel that you are a good candidate for vision-correcting surgery, we can perform all necessary pre-operative tests and provide you with the best follow-up care.
