Glasses Oakville

Unfortunately, many of us are so used to having our eyes on a computer screen or television set that eye and vision issues too often go unnoticed. Think about it, after staring at a computer screen for a time, do you have to rub your eyes? Squint because words and images are blurry? Use eye drops to soothe dry eyeballs? If you are experiencing these problems and others, then it’s time to talk to us at Invision Optical about computer eyestrain and the advantages of wearing computer glasses in Oakville. Read on for more information about the importance of wearing computer glasses.

Computer Vision Syndrome

Computer vision syndrome (CVS) is found to affect both adults and children who spend more than two hours a day in front of electronic screens, including computers, smartphones, tablets and other devices with a digital screen. Because of this, many people experience what is called digital eye strain. People with computer related eye strain often deal with dry and irritated eyes, blurry vision, headaches and general eye fatigue, and symptoms are made worse the longer your eyes remain planted on a digital screen. Other symptoms of computer vision syndrome include problems focusing, burning eyes, neck and shoulder pain, double vision, red eyes and eye twitching.

Reducing your risk of computer eye strain and computer vision syndrome is possible when you seek out an eye care professional who practices computer vision care. They will perform tests to detect vision problems that may be contributing to CVS or making it worse. Your doctor may recommend that you wear specialized computer eyeglasses to increase comfort while you’re working on your computer.

Why wear computer glasses in the Oakville area

First, computer glasses are not the same thing as regular eyeglasses with vision correction lenses. They are made to work with computer screens to optimize your eyesight the entire time you’re looking at a screen. Here are a few of the top benefits of wearing computer glasses:

  • Better focus: Today, our eyes are falling upon things that were not widely available (or even invented yet) even a short time ago. Computer glasses relax you and offer comfort so you can maintain focus.
  • Reduce blue-violet light: All digital screens emit blue-violet light, also known as harmful blue light. The glasses reduce the amount of bad light, filtering out about 20 percent of it and letting in good blue light.
  • Say goodbye to CVS symptoms: These lenses can reduce or eliminate CVS symptoms, including dry eyes, red and irritated eyes, headaches, eye strain, shoulder and neck pain, a sore back and other problems.

Our Services

Adult Eye Exam

At Invision Eye Clinic we recommend that every adult from the age of 19 to 65 have a comprehensive eye exam every year. As we get older, there is a higher chance to develop ocular conditions such as cataracts,  glaucoma, and macular degeneration. For this reason, an annual eye exam is all the more important for adults over the age of 65. An annual eye exam is also recommended for anyone with a systemic condition like diabetes or multiple sclerosis where there can be a significant impact on vision and ocular health.

Our doctors strive to provide outstanding eye care with visual solutions that are custom designed to meet each patients’ individual needs. Our experienced staff will then work one on one with each patient to find the glasses and lens options that best suits their respective lifestyle.

Child Eye Exam

At Invision Eye Clinic we recommend children have their first eye exam by the age of 3, and then yearly thereafter. With every child, we strive to support them with their visual development and help them meet the visual demands of the world around them.

During your child’s eye exam, our doctors will assess them for near-sightedness (myopia), far-sightedness (hyperopia), an eye turn (strabismus), lazy eye (amblyopia) and other ocular pathologies. We will also assess your child’s eye movement (tracking) skills, and the coordination of their eyes while they are performing visual tasks.

It is important to remember that your child does not need to be able to read or to identify letters to have an eye examination. Our tests are designed for all ages and provide vital information about your child’s eye health.

Dry Eye

Dry eyes can show up in various different forms; red eyes, watery eyes, itchy eyes, tired or uncomfortable vision. When the delicate balance of tears on the eye is unbalanced, a cascade of these symptoms can present. Crustiness around the eyes in the morning and chronic styes can also be traced back to a dry eye problem. The impact of our habits and environment cannot be overlooked. Our habits, environment and changes in season can all play a role in severity of our symptoms.

At Invision Eye Clinic, each exam includes an evaluation to not only identify potential dry eye, but to also investigate the possible causes and factors that have contributed to it.

For patients who are suffering from more advanced cases of dry eye, we offer in depth dry eye testing that investigates the root causes of the disease. We can develop a treatment plan that will involve both the management of symptoms and a preventative maintenance protocol.


Diabetes is a disease affecting how the body uses or produces insulin, a hormone that controls blood glucose (sugar) levels. Those suffering from diabetes are at risk of developing various other health issues, including impacts to their vision and eye health.

At our clinic, we implement the latest OCT technology to monitor and assess the impact of diabetes in the eye so that vision can be kept at optimal levels. Our diabetic eye exams not only include digital retinal imaging to look for diabetic changes, but also an internal sub-surface scan to create a detailed map of the eye. When required, our doctors can also use OCT angiography to map out individual blood vessels in the eye to look for even the earliest signs of damage from diabetes.


Glaucoma is a slow progressing disease and can often go unnoticed without regular testing. It involves an increase in eye pressure that can slowly damage the optic nerve inside the eye, causing vision loss. If left undiagnosed and untreated, it can easily lead to blindness.

At our clinic, we screen each and every patient with an OCT scan of their optic nerve to assess the risks of glaucoma. For patients who are at risk or who are diagnosed with glaucoma, comprehensive eye exams and visual field tests are crucial alongside more detailed OCT scans.

Glaucoma can be a confusing and stressful disease for patients. At our clinic, our doctors take the time to perform the necessary tests and discuss all the treatment options with our patients.

Our OCT retinal imaging camera takes a detailed scan of your retina allowing for early detection of many retinal diseases. Retinal imaging also allows for making close comparisons and watching for trend patterns between scans so that changes in the eyes can be monitored over time. The OCT has enabled eye care professionals to detect and monitor the subtle changes that can occur in diabetic retinopathy, hypertensive retinopathy, macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinal toxicity, and multiple sclerosis.

Visual field testing is done at our clinic through the world of virtual reality. With our portable VR headset, we are able to accurately and quickly perform all types of visual field tests. Alongside this, the wearable technology also allows us to perform screenings, colour vision, and pupillometry measurements right in the headset.
