There are many reasons why a regular eye exam with a trained eyecare professional is an important part of staying healthy.
First, during an eye exam, your doctor will check for signs of common eye diseases, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. These diseases can often be treated effectively if they are caught early.
Second, eye exams can also identify vision problems, such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. If you have a vision problem, your doctor can prescribe eyeglasses or contact lenses to help you see more clearly.
If it’s been a while since you had an eye exam, request an appointment today. Your eyes will thank you!
