Routine Annual Exams
Yearly eye exams with an optometrist are important for maintaining good vision and overall eye health.
During an eye exam, the optometrist will check your vision and perform a variety of tests to evaluate the health of your eyes. These tests can detect a wide range of eye problems, including nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, cataracts, glaucoma, and age-related macular degeneration.
An eye exam can also detect general health problems that may affect the eyes, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Many of these conditions have no early symptoms, so regular eye exams are an essential part of maintaining overall health.
Eye exams can also help to identify problems with children's vision early on, allowing for early treatment and preventing vision problems from getting worse.
Additionally, regular eye exams are important for people who wear contact lenses or glasses. An optometrist can ensure that your prescription is up to date and that your lenses or glasses are the right fit for you.
Regular eye exams with an optometrist are important for maintaining good vision and overall eye health, detecting and managing eye and general health problems, and ensuring proper vision correction. It is recommended to have an eye exam at least once a year, or as often as your optometrist recommends based on your individual needs.
