"The difference between a Doctor of Optometry (optometrist), an ophthalmologist and an optician is a common question among both healthcare professionals and the general public. The levels of training and expertise, and the core competencies, are different for each type of eye care provider."

In some provinces, a number of optical stores offer sight tests, or vision tests, which use automated machinery. However, a sight test is not a proper eye exam and is not performed by a trained and licensed professional. A Doctor of Optometry, on the other hand, can examine, diagnose, treat, manage and help prevent diseases and disorders affecting the visual system, the eye and related structures, as well as check an individual’s prescription and prescribe eyewear. Depending on the province, Doctors of Optometry can also prescribe medications to treat certain eye conditions, such as infections, inflammations, allergies and injuries.

For adults, a regular eye exam is an important part of maintaining your overall health and making your vision last a lifetime. Without an eye exam, critical health issues can be overlooked until it’s too late. Our eyes change as we age. In particular, people over the age of 40 may be at an increased risk for age-related eye conditions, some of which may have no visible symptoms until the condition is advanced and difficult, or even impossible, to treat. At age 65 and older, you should have an eye exam at least once a year. A comprehensive eye health examination should be the key to preserving your vision and making it last a lifetime. Regular exams conducted by your Doctor of Optometry give you peace of mind in knowing that your eyes are being treated by an eye health professional that can identify potential health issues early. Early identification and treatment of conditions that can often have no visible symptoms is key to protecting your sight.
