Why Are Eye Exams Important?
There is a terrible misconception that you only need to visit the eye doctor if you are currently having problems with your vision. The truth is, there are many eye health conditions that do not immediately show up as vision problems. Making an annual eye exam appointment can help the optometrist detect the early signs of vision and eye health problems. When problems are detected early, a treatment plan can be created quickly. Early intervention is often the key to protecting your eye health.
How Can We Help?
Our facility is equipped to perform comprehensive eye exams. This means we can screen your vision, perform ocular surface testing as well as a retinal scan. These types of diagnostics are essential to eye disease prevention. A simple vision screening cannot pick up on many of the eye health issues that a more in-depth eye exam can detect.
Eyes and Your Health
Many people do not realize that there are many types of health problems which can first manifest in the eyes as well. Problems such as high blood pressure and diabetes are often first detected though an eye exam. You may not be having any problems with your vision currently, but one of these serious health conditions could be developing without your knowing it. Your annual eye exam can pick up on these important health issues.
In addition to your eye health and your overall health, comprehensive eye exams are necessary to keep a check on your vision. As you age, your vision will change dramatically. Other things can affect your vision as well. Your annual visit to the eye doctor will detect any changes so that you can be proactive.
