Why Are Eye Exams Important?
Annual eye exams are crucial because they can help to detect signs of serious health conditions before there are any symptoms. Oftentimes, symptoms of health conditions often don’t appear until damage has already occurred, so eye exams allow you the opportunity to play it safe. Your eyes provide doctors with a clear view of your arteries, blood vessels, and cranial nerve, which literally make them a direct window into your health.
Eye Exams and Age
Eye exams become increasingly important as we age because we are more susceptible to diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. For many of these diseases, the symptoms are either unrecognizable or there are no symptoms whatsoever.
See The World More Clearly
Aside from the possibility of preventing disease, your vision is one of your most important assets. Even individuals with the healthiest of eyes may find that over time they experience some refractive issues, such as trouble reading a menu or watching television clearly. During this day and age, with all of the technology and screen-time that we experience, it is now more common than ever.
