Paediatric and Adult Eye Exams
Every person should have their eyes examined regularly. We recommend children have their very first eye exam at 3-6 months, at 2-3 years, then yearly after. Adults should have their eyes examined at least every 2 years and seniors yearly. OHIP covers yearly eye exams for persons 19 and under and 65 and over. These are general guidelines, but your doctor may recommend more frequent exams if you have or are at risk for any eye conditions or diseases.
Diabetic Eye Exams
Eye exams are covered yearly through OHIP for diabetics. We may recommend more frequent exams depending on retinal findings and a report will be sent to your family doctor each time.
Cataracts are a very common development with age, but may also manifest in younger persons due to excess UV expsoure, certain systemic diseases and medications. Dr. Cheng can detect and monitor the progression of cataracts, and refer you to the appropriate surgeon as your vision affects the quality of your daily life.
Refractive Surgery Co-Management
Patients require close monitoring for up to and sometimes more than 6 months after laser surgery. As a TLC Laser Centre affiliate doctor, Dr. Cheng works closely with them to determine potential candidacy for LASIK or PRK, and post surgical care. Ask Dr. Cheng about the new technologies in laser vision correction!
Emergency Eye Care
Eye abrasions, foreign bodies, infections and visual disturbances can often happen without notice. Dr. Cheng can assess these situations quickly and determine if there is any need for treatment or urgent referral to an ophthalmologist.
