With January being the start of a new year – and also the fact that this year is 2020 😉 – now is the perfect time to start taking better care of your eyes and to brush-up on the importance of regular eye exams.
You should always schedule an eye exam for you and your loved ones once each year. Here are a few reasons why taking the time to get your eyes checked annually is crucial in protecting your future vision:
- Early detection is key. So much can happen in a year. By having an eye exam once a year, you are giving one of our ophthalmologists or optometrists the opportunity to detect any possible problems early on in their development. Addressing any issues – such as glaucoma, cataracts, the need for LASIK surgery or even a dry eye condition – before they progress and become more severe is always a good idea. Early treatment can minimize damage to your eyes and vision.
- To protect your future vision. Even if you have 20/20 vision, having an eye exam once a year will help you save your vision for the future. Many people lose their vision so gradually that it’s hard to notice the effects – seeing your eye doctor so that they can help correct that vision loss early will protect your vision for years to come.
- An updated prescription – or look! Maybe you already have glasses… how long has it been since an eye doctor has checked to see if your prescription matches your current vision needs? If you’re like most people, probably too long. And, like most people, if an update is needed, you’ll be surprised at the difference it can make. Or, maybe you just want fresh, updated look with new frames… we love helping people select just the right look for your face and personality – and we have lots of great choices, from designer frames to budget conscious options.
