The Importance of Regular Eye Exams
Eye health is more than having good vision. Your eyes are sensitive organs, and much like the rest of your body they can be affected by your diet, lifestyle, and genetic factors. Just as you may see your physician to keep track of your general health, visiting an optometrist regularly can empower you to identify your needs and reach your goals.
Regular eye checkups can support your health in a variety of ways, including:
Improving Your Vision: You eyesight is an important component of your daily life. The eye doctor can prescribe prescription glasses and contact lenses to ensure you can see clearly. Routine screenings allow you to make adjustments to your vision as needed.
Identifying Potential Health Problems: The eyes can provide early warnings of the onset of conditions like hypertension and diabetes. Through regular exams, we can supplement your general care and give you the information to make positive decisions about your health.
Early Detection of Eye Conditions: Glaucoma, cataracts, and other conditions that affect your sight are easier to manage and treat if they are detected early. By teaming up with our eye doctor, you can stay on top of your eye health with confidence.
