Your eyes can tell you a lot about your health. Pay attention and they’ll tell you about problems you may not even know about. That’s the power of an annual eye exam. Protect your vision and overall health with regular visits to the eye doctor.
Eye exams help detect serious problems sooner
Your eyes can be windows to your health. Serious health problems show early signs through your eyes. A visit to your eye doctor can help detect signs of diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol, as well as eye diseases like cataracts and glaucoma.Catching these diseases early makes it easier to treat them sooner.
Eye exams fight tech with tech
Every day, we spend hours staring at phones, laptops, and tablets — all screens that emit blue light. Reports suggest over exposure may cause blurry vision, difficulty focusing, dry and irritated eyes, and headaches.
Turn the tables on the digital age with a digital eye exam. Your eye doctor will be able to detect any changes in your eyes due to screen exposure and may recommend investing in blue light glasses, which help protect your eyes.
Eye exams at every age
Eye exams are important at every age, whether you are 1 or 101. Everyone is susceptible to vision problems, which can affect their quality of life. Here are some key takeaways:
- Babies and toddlers: Should have their first eye exam between 6 and 12 months.
- School-age children: 1 in 4 may have vision problems that may affect learning.
- Adults: More than 75 percent of adults living in the United States use vision correctors.
- Seniors: The most common sufferers of glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration.
- Moms-to-be: Pregnancy can cause vision changes that your doctor should know about.
