At Eye 1st Vision Center, we stress the importance of eye and vision exams for patients of all ages. Please take a few minutes today to learn why eye exams are so important to your health.
A vision exam makes sure that your prescription is up to date so you can see clearly. If your prescription is not correct, you may struggle to see objects near or far. In a vision exam we will update your glasses or contact lens prescription if we feel it's necessary. When you keep up with your vision changes, you see clearly and get the most out of life. We recommend that healthy adults get their vision and eyes checked once a year.
Yet an eye exam is not just about protecting your vision. Our optometrist also checks your eyes to make sure they are healthy. We can screen for many eye diseases, from macular degeneration to glaucoma and cataracts. Early detection is key to treating these eye conditions and mitigating vision loss. We also check for signs of general wellness. If you are pre diabetic or have hypertension, your eyes show signs of these conditions. Seeking treatment right away is key to protecting your health and wellness.
It is never too early to develop good habits with optometry. We recommend that children have their vision tested as early as six months and then again at age 3, before they enter school. Testing your children's eyes makes sure they can see clearly.
As many as 25 percent of children can experience vision problems that lead to learning difficulties. Our optometrist says, please do not let your child be that 1 in 4.
