Your Vision Matters

Sight Test Reminder - Robson Optical

Regular eye exams by an optometrist can help catch any vision or eye health issues before they become serious, leading to vision loss or other health problems.

Areas your eye care specialist will check:

  • History: any eye or vision problems you may currently have to have had in the past
  • Visual Acuity: specific measurements with reading charts to evaluate how clearly each eye is seeing
  • Physiological tests: evaluations of depth perception, color vision, eye muscle movements, peripheral or side vision, and the way your pupils respond to light, assessment how well your eyes focus, move and work together
  • Keratometry: measures the curvature of the cornea by focusing a circle of light on the cornea and measuring its reflection
  • Refraction: determines the lens power you need to compensate for any refractive error (nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism)

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Start seeing the world as best as you can, book an eye exam at (604) 689-8813.

Eye examinations are also an important way to make sure that you have normal, healthy vision so you can perform your best at school, work or play!

Zeiss DriveSafe Lenses

Zeiss Drive Safe Lenses

Vision on the road is critical to your safety

No matter what type of driving you do, seeing clearly can be challenging for almost any driver. Driving is hazardous enough without also having to worry about your vision.

Ask yourself:

  • Is it hard for you to see objects quickly when driving in low light conditions like rain, twilight, or night?
  • Are you bothered by glare from oncoming headlights?
  • Do your current glasses give you problems when scanning the road, mirrors, and dashboard?

Don’t compromise your safety with eyeglasses that don’t provide the best possible vision on the road. ZEISS, the leader in precision optics for over 165 years, has a new solution for you – ZEISS DriveSafe.

ZEISS DriveSafe – the only pair you’ll need to make driving feel safer and to provide excellent all-day vision.
