You should see an optometrist at least once a year whether or not you believe you need vision correction.
With the right technology, the eye is the only place in your body where your doctor can evaluate the quality of your blood vessels without cutting you open. As such, an annual eye exam can detect not only eye diseases but also other systemic diseases like diabetes and high blood pressure, tumors, early sign of Alzheimer’s… etc.
Many serious eye diseases may start with no symptoms and when left untreated, can lead to vision loss and even blindness. With incurable eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, aged-related macular degeneration (AMD) and glaucoma, prevention is key in protecting and maintaining optimal vision.
So don’t neglect your eyes. Schedule your eye exam today.
