Lowy & Sewell Eye Care is now open to non-urgent as well as urgent care.

We have implemented the guidelines set by the College of Optometrists and the Ministry of Health.

  • Disinfection of touch points and equipment
  • Use of plexiglass barriers
  • All staff and patients are required to wear masks
  • A maximum number of people in the office will be strictly enforced to allow for 6 feet of spacing
  • Use of telemedicine as needed

The examination will be modified to provide the same level of care as always, but will decrease the time the Doctor is in close proximity to the patient. Advanced technology will be advised to keep this time to a minimum.

Our goal is safety while providing leading edge eye care.

Signs & Symptoms

Cataracts don’t suddenly develop overnight. They generally start off small and only begin to noticeably affect your vision as they grow. The first symptom is usually that your vision becomes blurred, hazy or cloudy. Additionally, you may become sensitive to light, making sunlight, oncoming headlights or indoor lighting appear exceptionally glaring or bright. Colors may seem dim and you may notice halos around lights or double vision.

The symptoms people experience from cataracts may vary. Some individuals even report a temporary improvement in near vision when a cataract first develops, a phenomenon known as “second sight”.

Here is a list of possible signs and symptoms of developing cataracts:

  • Blurry or cloudy vision (that can’t be corrected with a change in eyeglass prescription)
  • Glare from lamps, sunlight, oncoming traffic when driving at night or indoor lighting
  • Colors appear dim and less vibrant
  • Halos around lights
  • Double vision
  • Poor night vision
  • Sudden improvement in near vision

If you experience any change in your vision, visit your eye doctor immediately.
