Our optometrists have the knowledge and experience to provide you with personalized eye care during your next exam.
Vision Changes Occur Gradually
One of the most significant reasons to have an annual exam is because vision changes occur gradually. Your vision may have changed, and you won't even realize it. We often see patients suffering from frequent headaches due to wearing glasses or contacts with incorrect prescriptions. Routine eye exams help to ensure your prescription is up-to-date. If your prescription changes, we offer a wide array of glasses and contact lenses that best suit your aesthetic and daily needs.
Serious Eye Diseases Often Show No Early Symptoms
Many serious eye conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy often show no early symptoms. It isn't until serious symptoms like eye pain and vision loss sets in that patients realize they need eye care. However, there is no cure for glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, or macular degeneration. That's why eye exams are essential. During your exam, our optometrists will run various tests to diagnose eye-related issues early on. The earlier you are tested, the better chances you have for protecting your vision and preventing serious health problems from occurring.
Health Conditions Can Be Detected During an Eye Exam
Our optometrist can do more than catch eye diseases early. There are also certain general health issues that can be detected during an eye exam. High blood pressure, diabetes, brain tumors, and multiple sclerosis can all be detected during an eye exam. In many cases, these conditions can be detected by your optometrist before your primary care physician catches them.
