November 16, 2016
Cataracts are a clouding inside the eye that can cause blur, poor night vision, prescription changes, and improper colour vision.
 

Mites & Lice

October 27, 2016

Pupils

September 16, 2016
Did you know? Pupils are not black spots - they are holes in the iris that let light through to the retina at the back of the eye so you can see.

 

Allergy Season

August 31, 2016
It's a rough allergy season this year. If your eyes are itchy, watery and red, there may be relief! Your optometrist can prescribe medication to get you through the season.

 

Blue Eyes Are Light Brown?

August 29, 2016
The sky is not truly blue. Higher energy blue colour in sunlight bounces around the sky more than other colours and scatters the blue light. This scattering is why 'blue' eyes appear blue, even though they are truly light brown.

Insurance companies often allow direct billing for vision needs. Your next check-up and glasses might cost you nothing out of pocket as we can directly bill many health insurance providers on your behalf.
 

FREE Kids Sunglasses

May 26, 2016
FREE sunglasses for babies 6 to 18 months at Baden Eyecare Centre with their 1st eye exam (while supplies last).

Your baby's eye health and UV protection are especially important as their eyes are learning to see. 6 months is when your non-verbal cutie is ready for their first OHIP covered eye checkup.

 

Pupils

May 19, 2016
Pupils are big in young kids and shrink small with age, so seniors tend to have tiny pupils. They are big in the dark and shrink small in the light so it doesn't seem too bright for you.
 

Free Sunflower Seeds

April 21, 2016
Free giant sunflower seeds to plant this spring. While supplies last, stop on by Baden Eyecare Centre. (Limit one pouch per person so everyone can enjoy!)

 

Eye Colour

April 21, 2016
Eye "colours" look different because of the pattern and amount of brown pigment. Lighter eye colours, like blue, just have less brown pigment.
 

Travel

March 1, 2016
Don't forget your sunglasses if you travel down south. The suns rays are stronger near the equator, so sun protection is a must.  If you're heading out for winter fun, remember that we have ski, snowboard and snowmobile goggles available in prescription.
 

Central vs Side Vision

January 19, 2016
Central vision is best at seeing fine detail but side vision detects movement best, which is why people often see something "out of the corner of their eye".

Water Depth

August 23, 2015

Can't tell how deep the water is? Light rays travel slower in water than in air, so the ground looks closer than it really is.

July 29, 2015

Early studies have shown promise for a drop, lanosterol, that could dissolve cataracts. Although a long way from approval for use in humans, it has improved vision for some dogs!
