Has it been awhile since you had your eyesight tested? If so, it may be time to visit your local eye doctor in Winnipeg for a comprehensive eye exam. Dr. Martin Reinhorn Optometrist welcomes new and returning patients alike. General sight tests examine the amount of refraction required so you can see. The results are based on computerized tests and automated equipment. However, these vision tests cannot detect some of the more serious concerns that may be present. Elevated pressure within the eye (glaucoma), problems with the blood vessels (Diabetic retinopathy), cancerous or benign tumours, and retinal detachment are just some of the health issues only a licensed optometrist can check for.
It is recommended that people have a thorough eye exam every 1 to 2 years depending on your age, present health, family history, etc.
