an eye examinationFebruary is all about love, and we want to encourage you to show your eyes some LOVE by scheduling your annual eye exam. But, are eye exams really that important? If so, WHY? Allow us to explain four benefits of annual eye exams.

Maximize Opportunity for Success in School

These days, kids are either attending school in person or via digital learning. In both scenarios, it’s vital that their eyesight is functioning at optimal levels to maximize their opportunity for success in school. If a child can’t see the whiteboard clearly or looking at their laptop screen makes their eyes hurt, they can’t perform their absolute best. If it’s been a while since your child had an eye exam or their grades or dropping, schedule an appointment with one of our friendly team members.

Catch Myopia Early

Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a condition that causes objects that are far away to appear blurry but objects that are in close range are clear. According to the American Optometric Association, almost 100 million Americans suffer from myopia. With roughly 1 out of 3 Americans dealing with this vision issue, it’s vital that it is caught early so your eye doctor can implement myopia control measures.

Detect Serious Eye Diseases

There are some eye diseases that can sneak up on you; for example, glaucoma is called the “silent thief of sight” because its symptoms are hardly noticeable until your vision starts deteriorating. A comprehensive eye exam can detect symptoms of serious eye diseases before you physically notice them. Remember, preventive care is much better for your eyesight than reactive care!

Expose Other Serious Health Problems

Your eyes can provide indicators of other serious health problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or cancer. Comprehensive eye exams can detect symptoms of these issues, saving you precious time in case you need treatment.
