Mission Statement & History
The Downtown Optometry Clinic is a vibrant provider of vision care to the people of Fredericton and the surrounding area.
Our optometrists and staff believe in complete patient care, and seek to put into practice the products and services necessary to show we value your vision. From eye health to the provision of high quality eye glasses and contact lenses, we strive to exceed our patients’ expectations with the goal of being a truly patient care based practice.
The health of your eyes and vision is our number one priority. Early diagnosis of eye diseases and visual disorders is key to preserving and enjoying the gift of sight. Our dedicated Eyecare team strives to provide the best possible vision performance through the highest quality of vision and eye health care, customer service, state of the art instrumentation and craftsmanship.
It is never too early, or late, to have your first eye exam. 80% of all learning is visual. To reach your full potential, and help kids reach theirs, healthy eyes and comfortable, clear vision is vital. The Canadian Association of Optometrists recommends the following :
A person's eye care needs are very case specific and so the above recommendations may not apply in all cases.
Having a proper contact lens consultation and fitting is the key to contact lens wearing success. There are contact lenses for almost all types of vision problems but only an eye care professional with proper training and experience can provide you with the right one for you. Seeing well is important, but the lenses also have to be safe, comfortable, and not impact on the long term health of your eyes. Our Optometrists have extensive training and expertise in all types of contact lenses and will be happy to answer any question you might have about vision correction with contact lenses.
Our Optometrists can also provide specialty contact lens fittings for keratoconus, severe dry eye, post corneal graft or transplant, among many other conditions.
Our optometrists are fully qualified to provide LASER vision correction consultations, as well as complete before and after surgical care. Consulting with your Optometrist is incredibly important before considering LASER vision correction. Two of our Optometrists have had LASER vision correction themselves!
All children should have an eye exam before starting kindergarten. 80% of learning is visual which means that if a child's vision is blurry it is hard to learn. Studies show that approximately 1 in 4 children have a vision problem, BUT only 14% of school age children have had proper eye care! Undetected vision problems can lead to children being labelled as having behavioral or learning problems. Children usually do not realize or complain of vision difficulties - they just assume that their vision is normal. All children deserve to see well; seeing an optometrist for a comprehensive eye exam is the best way to ensure they do.
