Welcome to White Rock Optometry in White Rock, BC
At White Rock Optometry we have been serving White Rock, South Surrey, and the surrounding area since 1982. Our eye doctors are always accepting new patients and would be happy to help you & your family with all your eye care needs.
Depending upon your age, lifestyle and overall health condition, vision care requirements change. In our friendly clinic, we become familiar with each individual patient in order to customize eye exams and treatment options.
Our family of eye care services include eye exams for kids and adults, contact lens exams, vision correction and management of age-related eye disease. Located conveniently to serve White Rock residents, we offer hours to suit every family’s schedule.
A large part of the examination is finding out what the patient is experiencing and determining the type of dry eye causing the symptoms. We examine the surface of the eye under a microscope to look at the quantity and the quality of the tear film. Additionally, we examine the eyelids and the glands inside the eyelids to insure they are healthy.
There are a wide range of treatments ranging from over the counter products to specialty laser procedures. Many times using artificial tears and vitamin supplements can help boost the tear film. There are prescription eye drops that can aid in tear production as well as laser procedures for patients with more advanced dry eye.
Of course – stay hydrated and making sure you consume enough water each day. Additionally, take breaks from your computer and smart phone. I recommend the 20/20/20 Rule – take a 20 second break every 20 minutes and look 20 feet away and blink your eyes. Finally, wearing sunglasses is critical to protecting the surface of the eye and the eyelids from UV exposure.
