Armstrong & Small Eyecare Centre: Your Optometrists in Winnipeg

What do your eyes say about you?

Our eye care centre mission is to provide compassionate eye care in Winnipeg, MB by a dedicated team of professionals using the latest technical and medical equipment.

Most people think about colour or maybe emotions or even expressions. But what if we told you that your eyes could tell us all about your general health! What if we told you that eye diseases like Glaucoma could lead to blindness without a single symptom until it was too late?

At Armstrong & Small Eyecare Centre our Winnipeg optometrists have been telling people what their eyes say about them for over 100 years. That's a lot of eyes and a lot of experience.

Myopia Management

Myopia is also known as “nearsightedness” and curses distance vision to be blurry. Progression or increase in myopia happens as the eyes grow, which is why myopia often worsens as children get older.
