The importance of a yearly eye examination can be summed up by pointing out the consequences of not getting one: the health of your eyes could be in jeopardy from eye disease that has no symptoms. In addition, while there is no clear danger to not having optimal vision, it certainly has a positive effect on everything you do. Because of this, we at Vision Center urge you to have our Greenlawn eye test annually.
Your vision needs evolve. Over the years, most people notice that their vision is not as good as it used to be. This might be a small change or a big one, but it means that the gap between how you see right now and the best possible vision you can get is probably growing. This is true if you don’t wear corrective eyewear or if you have an existing prescription. Our Greenlawn eye test is designed to determine what level of vision improvement you can have with new eyeglasses or contact lenses, or by getting your current ones updated. The most common eye diseases are glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration. Among them, they are responsible for loss of vision and various damage to the physical structure of your eyes. Worst of all, clear signs of them typically do not show up until they progressed to an advanced stage. But our Greenlawn eye test allows for prompt diagnosis, and therefore timely treatment and management. Eye disease may not be curable, but it can be slowed down and you can retain the highest degree of vision under the circumstances. Why risk any other outcome? As an added bonus, early indications of diabetes and high blood pressure are evident in your retinal blood vessels, meaning that you can get a head start on having those dealt with, too.
Reach out to our office right now and let us schedule you for a visit to have a yearly eye exam, now that you know just how important it really is.
