How important is it to have a yearly eye examination? Well, if you care about your eye health and you want to enjoy the benefits of always having the sharpest and clearest vision that you can, the answer is very important. We believe that all of our valued customers care very much about those things, and at Eye Town, we make it easy to have your annual exam from our eye doctor in Beaver.
Do you already wear corrective lenses? If so, you undoubtedly were experiencing impressive improvement in your vision when you put them on for the first time. How about now? Your vision changes over time, and even if the reduction in vision correction is marginal, the truth is that adequate vision alone is not the goal that most people strive for. You may be able to do better with an update to your existing prescription; more so if your vision has become noticeably poor with your current glasses or contacts. Many of our customers have never had corrective eyewear in their lives, and if that’s you, our eye doctor in Beaver will be able to determine if this is the right time for that to change. As crucial as your vision is, however, it is not the only reason to have a yearly visit to our office. Common eye diseases such as glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy develop silently. That is to say that they have no obvious symptoms as they progress through their early stages. And that can pose a severe danger to your eye health, with both permanent vision loss and eye damage possible. Our eye doctor in Beaver can use the advanced diagnostic equipment here to find signs of those diseases early enough to treat them effectively.
While it’s on your mind, reach out to our office and arrange your visit for a yearly eye exam.
