Regular eye exams are an essential part of maintaining good eye health and vision. Many eye conditions do not show symptoms until they have progressed to a point where they cannot be reversed. By getting regular eye exams, you can catch these conditions early and take steps to protect your vision.
During an eye exam, your eye doctor will check your eyesight, test your visual acuity, assess your eye movements, check for eye diseases and conditions, and evaluate the health of your eyes. This is also an opportunity for you to ask questions about your vision and eye health and discuss any concerns you may have.
It’s recommended that adults have an eye exam at least once every two years, or more frequently if they have a specific eye condition or risk factor such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or a family history of eye disease.
Regular eye exams are important not just for detecting and treating eye conditions, but also for maintaining good overall health. Eye exams can detect underlying health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and brain tumors.
Don’t wait until you have symptoms to schedule an appointment, protect your vision and schedule an eye exam today.
