Adult eye exams
Maintain your eye heath with regular adult eye exams.
Dr. Sheldon Salaba, Optometrist in Hamilton, Ontario offers adult eye exams.
Your eyes are also windows to your overall health, and an eye exam can also uncover underlying—and life-threatening—health issues, such as Type 2 diabetes, brain tumors, cancer of the eye, high blood pressure, certain vascular diseases and brain or eye tumors.
Adults aged 19 to 64 should have an eye exam at least every two years, and people with diabetes should have an exam at least once a year. Other health conditions may also require more frequent eye examinations.

Children's eye exams
Early vision care in key to maintaining your child's eye health.
Dr. Sheldon Salaba, Optometrist performs children's eye exams at Advanced Vision in Hamilton, Ontario.
To help maintain healthy vision, children should have their eyes first examined at six months of age to be sure each eye focuses, the eyes are straight, and there is no internal eye disease. They should then get eye exams again at three years old and then every 12 months after that or as recommended by our optometrist and then again before he or she enters school. It is extremely important to get your children's eyes examined because success at school can be hindered if vision problems go undiagnosed.

CONTACT LENS FITTING
Giving You Comfortable Eyes and Exceptional Vision.
Contact Lens Services from our Hamilton Optometrist Office.
Dr. Sheldon Salaba Optometry Offices offer appointments for contact lens fittings and check ups.
Optometrists are trained to assess the suitability of contact lenses for patients of all ages, including those requiring contact lenses for aphakia, kerataoconus, and post refractive surgery.
The goal is to find the most appropriate lenses for your comfort, vision needs and eye health. We offer many modalities of lenses, including daily wear, and extended wear. We also fit contacts for patients with astigmatism, or who require bifocal lenses.
A contact lens fitting involves a different set of measurements that are more detailed than the 'baseline' testing seen in routine eye exams. It's essentially a more 'in-depth' look at the shape and health of your cornea and overall state of your tear film. This allows the Dr. Sheldon Salaba, Optometrist in Hamilton to identify and minimize any risks or limitation associated with contact lens wear.
Improper fitting contact lenses can lead to blurred vision, eye strain, eye pain, redness or swelling of the eye, which can range from mild to severe. The most serious complications include infection and corneal ulcers, which can develop quickly and lead to irreversible vision loss if not treated appropriately. It is very important to have your contact lenses fit by an eye care professional to avoid these complications.

Manage and treat Glaucoma.
Dr. Sheldon Salaba, Optometrist in Hamilton, Ontario offers glaucoma management.
Glaucoma is a progressive disease that damages the the optic nerve in one or both eyes and can result in vision loss or blindness. Once vision is lost, no treatment exists to restore it. Early detection and prevention of further vision loss is the basis for all treatments available today.
Dr. Sheldon Salaba, Optometrist has specialized equipment that is capable of detecting changes well before any vision loss is noticed. The disease is detected and monitored primarily by using that specialized equipment to assess:
- Structural changes in the eye
- Central corneal thickness
- Eye pressure
- Visual fields
Immediate treatment for early stage glaucoma can delay the progression of the disease. Treatments vary from medicine such as eyedrops or pills, laser trabeculoplasty which drains the fluid out of the eye, or conventional surgery, to a combination of any of these. Treatments can help save remaining vision, but can not improve sight that has already been lost. There are many different forms of glaucoma. The most common being open-angle, but there is also low or normal-tension glaucoma, angle-closure glaucoma, and congenital glaucoma. They vary in severity, but early detection and treatment is still key.
Dr. Sheldon Salaba, Optometrist has received extensive training in glaucoma diagnosis and glaucoma management. We offer a variety of treatment options to help mange your glaucoma. We encourage you to contact us if you have any questions about glaucoma management in Hamilton, Ontario.
