Eye Conditions

The following is a list of common eye conditions. For information about cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy please see Eye Diseases.

  • Commonly called "lazy eye", amblyopia can be treated successfully if detected early enough in childhood.
  • Glaucoma is a leading cause of preventable vision loss and blindness in adults in the United States and Canada and the second leading cause of blindness in the World.
  • Often mistakenly called “stigmatism,” this common vision problem can be corrected with eyeglasses, contact lenses or refractive surgery.
  • Dry eye syndrome is a common condition, especially in women over age 40. Many treatment options are available.
  • “Floaters” are usually normal and harmless. But if you notice a sudden increase in floaters or floaters accompanied by flashes of light, see your eye doctor immediately.
  • This eye disease causes the cornea to grow thinner and bulge forward in an irregular cone-shape. Treatment options range from gas permeable contact lenses to a cornea transplant.

WE ARE OPEN!

Due to Covid-19 we have taken extensive measures to keep our staff and patients safe. Please call or email ptcoptometricclinic@gmail.com prior to coming in so that we can book a time and notify you of our safety protocols in order to maintain social distancing.

If you need to order your contact lenses please call or email us and we will ship them to you directly. If you prefer, our Optometrists are still offering virtual eye care when possible.

We ask that if you or someone you live with has been ill in the last 14 days, you have traveled outside Canada in the last 14 days and/or you have been diagnosed/exposed to COVID-19 in the last 30 days that you refrain from making an appointment at this time.

*Please note our Sunday hours have been tentatively changed to match the current mall hours of 11-5pm.

Thank you for making our clinic a safe space.
