You may have trouble convincing yourself that routine eye exams are a necessity. If you have always had good vision there is no reason to worry, right? While it may seem natural to put off an annual eye exam, there are a few things an optometrist at our office will check for other than vision correction issues. Here’s a list of some of the things you can expect during routine eye exams:
- Common Eye Diseases – Did you know your eyes can suffer from low vision due to disease? Glaucoma, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol can all be determined during a visit to our office.
- Corrective Prescriptions – If it takes your eyes longer than usual to adjust or you’ve begun to notice blurry vision, a routine eye exam is the best way to determine what steps you should take next.
- Overall Health Indicators – Your eyes can be indicators of other health issues, like diabetes. You may not even be aware of a health-related issue until you schedule a routine eye exam.
- How Your Eyes Work Together – Dizziness and headaches are just two common problems that may arise when your eyes are not working together properly. Routine eye exams can help to address this issue when you are experiencing problems that don’t seem to resolve.
