Whether you need vision correction or not, it is important for everyone to have a yearly comprehensive eye exam. During the eye exam the doctor can detect glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Early detection allows for more treatment options and giving the chance of reducing or reversing the symptoms.
It is really important if you have a family history of any eye problems or are at a high risk of diabetes and/or high blood pressure. There are also some medications that may affect the eyes. We recommend getting an eye exam yearly for every one.
During the exam the doctor will determine if there are any vision changes and also determine if there are any changes to the health of the eyes.
