Comprehensive eye exams are more than just checking your vision to see if you need glasses or contact lenses. During an eye exam the eye doctor is checking the health of your eyes to look for diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, or macular degeneration.
Eye doctors are often the first to diagnose problems such as diabetes or hypertension because they are looking directly at the nerves and blood vessels in your eye! Many eye conditions do not cause symptoms until they become more advanced and many conditions are treatable through medications or other interventions. By getting your eyes checked regularly you can make sure that you have a lifetime of good vision.
Young Eyes Should be Checked Too!
You should have your eyes checked every year. This is especially important for school aged children because 80% of the learning they will do in the classroom is through vision. Having your child’s eyes checked regularly can ensure that problems are detected before they fall behind in classwork.
