Why vision care?

People with vision problems are more likely to have other health issues, such as diabetes, thyroid disease and neurological impairments. That’s where simple, comprehensive eye exams come into play. Early detection can help lessen some of the long-term effects and help preserve vision.

Not only can they identify vision issues—including cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration—but they can also identify systemic diseases like those mentioned above.

An eye health professional can provide solutions for symptoms you may now or soon be experiencing, and even aid in the potential diagnosis of behavioral problems, particularly in children. They may also educate you on the effects of basic external influences, like your nutrition and vitamin intake. Such education or solutions may help with:

  • Computer Vision Syndrome
  • UV protection of corneas and retinas
  • ADD and ADHD misdiagnoses
  • Eye safety awareness
  • Reducing the impact of glare on your eyes
  • Understanding the effect of standard medications on eyesight

When you schedule your eye exam, remember to schedule one for the rest of the family too, including any infants and children in your home.
