You may be wondering why you need to have an eye exam every year. Is it really that important? Well, at Today’s Vision Pearland, we’re committed to keeping your eyes healthy and your eyesight at the highest level possible. Your eyes are going through changes all the time, and this is one very good reason why you should avail yourself of our 77581 eye care on a yearly basis.
From a standpoint of your vision, if you have never worn eyeglasses or contact lenses before, this may be the year when you find you could benefit from them. Why settle for eyesight that is just okay when you could see more sharply and more clearly? And even if you already have prescription lenses, you may need an update for it. Glasses or contacts that are not giving you the best vision you’re capable of having are not of much value. This goes for nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia. And if you have more than one vision issue, our 77581 eye care will prescribe bifocal or multifocal lenses for you.
As vital as your vision correction is, the other essential reason to schedule an eye exam every year with our 77581 eye care is to screen you for common eye diseases. At first, this may not seem all that big a deal. After all, if you feel fine and you’re not experiencing any symptoms, then there’s nothing to worry about, right? Wrong. Eye conditions such as cataracts and glaucoma can affect anyone at any age. Other diseases, like diabetic retinopathy, are applicable if you have diabetes, or macular degeneration if you’re 40 or older. One thing that all of those diseases have in common is that they have no signs that are evident during their early stages. This means that the disease can form and progress without you knowing. Typically, by the time that you notice anything, it would mean that some level of eye damage or vision loss has occurred. And it may not be irreversible.
Our 77581 eye care can even detect other health issues not related to your eyes. High cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetes can all be evident from an examination of the blood vessels in your eyes. So, now that you know all of the good reasons, why not schedule your eye exam with us right now?
