3 Reasons Why You Shouldn't Skip Your Regular Eye Exam
Eye care is important for everybody, from kids to seniors. At Warm Springs Optometric Group, we recommend that Fremont residents visit us for adult and pediatric eye exams on a regular basis. Here are three reasons why you shouldn't put off that eye care appointment you've been meaning to make.
1. An eye exam is the best way to detect eye problems while they're still treatable.
Many eye problems like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy, do not cause any symptoms at first. By the time you start noticing symptoms from these eye diseases, it is often impossible to fix the damage that has already occurred. When you get regular dilated eye exams, your optometrist can spot developing problems that you might not be aware of.
2. An eye exam may be your first clue about other health problems.
Your eye health can tell you a lot about your general health. In addition to detecting eye diseases early, dilated eye exams are also useful for spotting other health problems such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, liver disease, and even brain tumors.
3. It's important for people of all ages to be aware of their eye health.
No one is too young or too old to be thinking about eye care. If you have a family, don't forget to bring your kids in for regular eye checkups with our pediatrics department. Children do better at school when they are able to see well. Older adults may benefit from more frequent eye care visits, since age increases a person's odds of developing certain eye diseases.
