The importance of having routine eye exams
Many people don’t get their eyes examined regularly unless they are experiencing obvious problems. Many eye diseases, however, have few or no warning signs until they’ve taken away some or all of your vision—at which point it may be too late. Diagnosing eye disease as early as possible gives you the best chance of saving your sight. That’s where regular eye exams come in. The only way to make sure your eyes are as healthy as you think they are is to have your doctor confirm it. You can choose among these providers:
- James Davidian, MD
- Benjamin Taylor, OD
- Helen Koenigsman, MD
- Brendan Butler, MD
- Stacey Hoins, OD
- Matt Oliva, MD
- Paul Jorizzo, MD
- Heather French, OD
- John Welling, MD
The top reasons to have an annual eye exam are:
1. To uncover hidden disease
Experts suggest that regular eye exams can aid in the early detection of diseases such as high blood pressure, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, strokes, kidney problems, brain tumors, and other general health conditions.
2. To detect and prevent eye disease
Early detection is the key to your healthy vision. Because many serious eye diseases have no symptoms, regular eye exams allow your doctor to monitor your vision and help prevent possible blindness. Once your vision is lost, it often cannot not be restored.
3. To preserve your healthy vision
Checking your prescription on a regular basis ensures you are seeing as clearly as possible. Your eyesight affects everything you do, including driving, working, studying, playing sports and more. Maintaining proper eyesight enhances your quality of life.
4. To maintain your general well-being
If you suffer from frequent headaches or fatigue, the solution could be as simple as changing your prescription or the design of your eyewear. For example, if you work on a computer and have trouble focusing, or if you have burning, tired or sensitive eyes, you may have computer vision syndrome (CVS), which can be treated with specially-designed eyeglasses.
