When we have healthy eyes, we may miss the importance of taking preventative action such as an optical examination. Nevertheless, timely detection of any eye or vision problems is necessary to keeping your eyes healthy. And all it requires is a yearly eye exam.
Many optical problems don't have any obvious warning signs. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist.

Glaucoma is the main source of blindness, resulting in loss of sight for over three million Americans. Glaucoma is often referred to as ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can strike absent of forewarning. Almost two-thirds of adult Americans fail to use visual aids and don't get regular eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at greater risk.
The unfortunate fact is that most individuals don't realize that vision threatening diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration are often a-symptomatic and without a routine exam are frequently found only when it's too advanced.
Routine eye examinations to check for eye disease should be a priority. Make sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local optometrist to maintain healthy eyes for many long years.
