Comprehensive eye exams are a vital part of caring for your eyes, protecting your vision, and evaluating your overall health. Prioritize eye health this National Eye Exam Month (and every day) by staying on top of annual exams to help catch any vision changes or health issues, often leading to better treatment and correction options. Here are the key reasons to add eye exams as part of your yearly routine!
Prevent Eye Diseases
According to the American Optometric Association (AOA), nearly all Americans believe their eye health is just as important as the health of their heart, but, don’t think they need an eye exam if their vision is clear. Often with no early symptoms or warning signs, the only way to find out if you have common eye diseases including glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and age-related macular degeneration is receiving a comprehensive eye exam. Even if you’re seeing life clearly, get ahead of the curve and take the necessary preventative measures!
Staying up to date with your prescription
Glasses with an outdated prescription will no longer correct your vision — potentially leading to more health issues. As our vision changes over time, it’s important to keep prescriptions up to date to avoid experiencing the unwanted symptoms of eye strain, headaches, and dry eye.
