The optometrists at Dr. Bishop & Associates are members of the Dry Eye Institute of Canada.
Although it might seem simple from the name, dry eyes can actually be pretty complicated. The tears that sooth and lubricate your eyes aren’t just water.
Dry eye is often seen in older adults as part of the natural aging process but it can be present in people of all ages.
We here at Dr. Bishop & Associates would like to introduce our patients to the newest and best technology in contact lenses from SynergEyes called Duette Multifocal.
Have you worn contact lenses before and stopped? Are your contact lenses dry at the end of the day? Do you only find your contact lenses to be “okay”?
If you need an eye doctor in Calgary, turn to Dr. Bishop & Associates. For patients experiencing vision problems, our doctors can provide optomap® retinal scanning to pinpoint issues.
How often should you get an eye exam? Every year. Factors like medical history, genetics and age all play a part.
In life one of the most rewarding and powerful things you can do is to give back to your community. There is nothing better than the feeling of knowing that you have made a positive impact in someone’s life.
In many cases, both eyeglasses and contact lenses can be used for vision correction. Nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, and even astigmatism can be treated with either method.
Colour vision deficiencies, or CVD, affect the physical makeup of the eye, decreasing an individual’s ability to distinguish between colours.
