Why Regular Eye Exams Are So Important
Eye exams are more about vision – they’re also
about your health.
The American Optometric Association (AOA)
recommends eye exams at least once a year. Your optometrist or ophthalmologist may
recommend more frequent exams.
For adults and children, eye exams are an
important part of maintaining good health. Having your eyes checked regularly
ensures your best possible vision. Eye health exams also check for signs of eye
disease or conditions that affect more than your vision but your overall
A comprehensive eye exam is performed by an eye
doctor who scans for eye and vision health. Such an exam assesses underlying
causes for vision problems and possible diseases that can threaten your sight and
overall health, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol,
tumors, cancer, autoimmune disorders and thyroid disorders.
If your child is experiencing developmental
delays or trouble in school there could be an underlying vision problem. Proper
learning, motor development and other skills are dependent upon good vision.
Often children don’t know that the vision they are experiencing is abnormal so
they aren’t able to express that they need help. Many conditions are easier to
treat when they are caught early on while eyes are still developing.
And just like our bodies, our eyes weaken as we
age. There are many age-related eye conditions like presbyopia, cataracts and
age-related macular degeneration that affect your vision and your daily life.
While some of these conditions are more of an inconvenience, others could lead
to vision loss and dependency.
In addition to regular yearly eye exams, it is
important to be aware of any changes in your eye health and vision. Also know
your potential risk factors as well as your family ocular and medical history.
Over half of the vision loss worldwide is preventable with proper treatment and
