Why Are Eye Exams Important?
Along with determining your visual acuity and required prescription, eye exams are essential for catching eye diseases before they’ve advanced and become difficult to treat. Regular eye exams allow us to monitor changes in your eye health over time, so we can better identify early warning signs of underlying eye issues.
Additionally, we become more susceptible to age-related eye and vision issues over time, like presbyopia, cataracts, and age-related macular degeneration. Undergoing regular eye exams is an important step to maintaining healthy and strong eyes as we get older.
