Holistic Eye Care in South Surrey / White Rock

Discover Lifestyle Changes that Can Impact Your Eye Health

Holistic Eyecare

Eye wellness starts with overall wellness.

Our Eye Wellness Exam starts by asking questions about your eyes, medical & family history; but also your lifestyle choices, such as diet and exercise; work related activities; and your hobbies & interests.

By focusing on you as a person as opposed to simply the presenting complaint, we can determine the cause of your symptoms. Many people don’t realise how interconnected their eyes are with the rest of the body.

Your Vision – Your Health – Your Wellbeing …

Education is Included

Our holistic approach involves working together to identify areas in your life where changes can be made to impact your vision and eye health. We will discuss nutrition, physical activity, overall physical wellness, workplace set up, lighting, and more. Based on the evaluation, you will be advised on certain lifestyle modifications as integrated part of your treatment.


Eye supplements are nutritional products that contain specific vitamins and other nutrients that research has shown can benefit eye health and good vision.

However, as their name suggests they are designed to supplement not replace nutrients you get from a healthful diet; and cannot completely make up for serious nutritional shortcomings of a poor diet / too much junk food - which are associated with many serious health problems including vision loss.

Results from AREDS and other nutritional studies strongly indicate that the earlier one begins to make lifestyle and nutrition improvements, the less risk he or she has for degenerative eye disease such as AMD and cataracts. For older patients already at risk for AMD, it is better late than never when it comes to the use of nutraceuticals.

So at Royal London, we have partnered with several Canadian nutriceutical companies to provide our patients with high quality supplements. These play a key role in reducing inflammation and oxidative changes associated with the development of degenerative diseases

Although known as CVS [Computer Vision Syndrome] this can also be due to tablet and mobile screens, resulting in any of the following symptoms:

  • Eye strain
  • Eye fatigue
  • Eye irritation
  • Headaches
  • Neck/shoulder pain

  • Light sensitivity
  • Dry eyes
  • Double vision
  • Intermittent Blur
  • Slow shift of near to far vision

Sometimes this can be helped by simply altering the set-up of the workstation/screen, lighting, rest breaks, etc. Other times Dr. Bains may need to prescribe glasses, adjust your current prescription, or issue a specific computer lens. The goal is to relieve excessive eye strain so that you can work efficiently and comfortably, and go home with less fatigue. We want your eyes to work… not to overwork.

Concussion or mTBI [minor traumatic brain injury] is caused by the brain bouncing back and forth in the skull following an injury, then resulting in impairment of brain and vision functions. Nerve fibres can get twisted and damaged and may not regenerate causing permanent problems. Possible visual symptoms:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Disorientation
  • Confusion
  • Foggy feeling
  • Lack of coordination
  • Slower reaction time
  • Nausea

  • Difficulty with reading
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Difficulty with reasoning
  • Blurred vision
  • Double vision
  • Loss of visual field
  • Light sensitivity
  • Difficulty with everyday activities
  • Loss of ability to focus up close

Scientific research is now indicating that this a permanent injury which increases the risk of depression, dementia and Parkinson’s disease later in life. Whilst the “rest until you feel better” approach still is valid, there is a growing body of thought that intervention and “therapy” to keep damaged regions of the brain active and challenged may be beneficial. So, stimulating visual activity alongside therapy should help cognitive function return sooner and more completely than with just rest.
