Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of blindness among Canadians. In its early stages, glaucoma does not exhibit symptoms, which makes it difficult to catch without a comprehensive eye exam. Most patients have no idea something is wrong until they have already experienced permanent peripheral vision loss.

Though most floaters are harmless, floaters can be a sign that something is wrong. A sudden shower of floaters accompanied by flashes of light could indicate that you have a retinal tear or are experiencing a retinal detachment.
If retinal tears and retinal detachments are not treated quickly, they can cause permanent vision loss or even blindness.
If you are experiencing a new flashes and/or floaters contact please contact Pinehouse Eyecare at (306) 700-5359 during office hours or after hours at (306) 700-3729 or proceed to your nearest emergency room.

Many of us occasionally experience dry eyes, but chronic dry eyes can impact our productivity and quality of life. Luckily, relief is available at Pinehouse Eyecare.

Many of us spend hours looking at our phones, computers, and tablets, and it is putting a lot of stress on our eyes. Our eyes are not designed to focus at one distance for prolonged periods of time, and doing so causes our focusing muscles to become fatigued. Increased digital device use also causes us to blink less frequently, which can leave our eyes feeling dry and irritated.
Eye muscle fatigue and dry, uncomfortable eyes are both symptoms of digital eye strain, which can also cause headaches and affect our productivity.
For more information about digital eye strain, and tips on how to reduce and avoid it, please visit our Digital Eye Strain page.
Diabetes impacts most of our biological systems, including the visual system. Individuals with diabetes may develop a serious condition called diabetic retinopathy, which can cause permanent vision loss if left untreated. People with diabetes are also more likely to develop other serious eye conditions, such as cataracts and glaucoma.
To help protect your eye health and vision, Pinehouse Eyecare offers eye exams that are specifically tailored to meet the needs of diabetic eyes. For more information, please visit our Diabetic Eye Exams page.
Conjunctivitis can be divided into three main types: allergic, bacterial, and viral. Though these three conditions share similar symptoms, they have different root causes, which means they require different treatment methods.
If you suspect that you have conjunctivitis, you should visit your optometrist as soon as possible. You may be contagious, and depending on which form of conjunctivitis you have, you may require medical treatment.
For more information, please visit our Conjunctivitis page.
As we age most of us will develop cataracts, which can impair our vision. Luckily, treatment is available. Cataract surgery is quick and can restore both your vision and your overall quality of life.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) mostly affects the central vision of individuals over the age of 60. Unfortunately, this serious condition may not show symptoms during its early stages, which means some patients don’t know they have AMD until they have already experienced permanent vision loss.
You can safeguard your sight by undergoing regular eye exams.
For more information about AMD, please visit our Age-Related Macular Degeneration page.
