Having your eye exams done annually is one of the most important and responsible things you can do to keep your eyes healthy regardless of age or physical health.
Regular visits to the eye doctor are key, as an optometrist or ophthalmologist can make sure the health of your eyes and vision are staying consistent and not degrading or developing a serious eye condition or disease.
During your comprehensive eye exam, your eye doctor does much more than just determine your prescription for eyeglasses and contact lenses. He or she will also examine the eye for common eye diseases, assess how your eyes work together as a team and evaluate your eyes as an indicator for your overall health and wellness. Further, with the aid of advanced instrumentation and testing, many eye related diseases and disorders can be diagnosed and treated before having any impact on your overall vision.
