Have you been avoiding your annual optical exam? If you require vision correction for a sight condition, you need to be seeing your local Cedar City optometrist at least once a year for a check-up and examination of your eyes, and for good reason. Optical examinations can detect changes in your sight that you may not even notice yourself, as well as perform diagnostic testing which is essential in catch diseases and infections other than your pre-existing condition. Eyes do not stay healthy and strong and their own, but with regular check-ups and professional optical health care from the experts at Eye Town.
For many of us, our vision problems are a natural progression from an inherited condition that runs within our families. This means that while our eyes do not often progress very quickly, that our sight is always changing, and often does so at such a slow and gradual rate that you may not realize your prescription has changed until your eyes are properly examined by your trusted Cedar City optometrist. In the past our optical conditions would plateau in adulthood, usually around the age of 18-20, but with today’s rise of computer use and other LCD screened devices always glued to our noses, our optical conditions can continue to grow worse for far longer than once believed.
Not only do optical exams work to insure your eyes are seeing clearly without straining themselves in an often painful manner, but they also work to insure your eyes are actually as physically healthy as you believe them to be. Our doctors at your professional Cedar City optometrist perform a series of effective yet non-invasive diagnostic testing which can detect the early signs of destructive optical diseases such as cataracts and glaucoma. These illnesses often show no symptoms, and can cause total blindness without proper treatment. As you continue to age your risk of developing these illnesses rises, and is made even greater by the presence of diabetes, regular use of steroids, or a high grade of myopia or astigmatism.
Regular eye exams are not just a check on your vision strength, but can actually save your sight from these disease, which remain today as the top causes of blindness in industrialized nations. An optical exam can also open new doors of treatment which you may not have believed to be available to you, such as new advances in lenses and coatings which can make your eyeglasses a helpful addition to your daily life and actually make life easier, instead of being a hindrance. For the latest in optical technology and personalized care patients need look no further than their neighborhood Cedar City optometrist at offices of Eye Town, for care that is both affordable and professional.
