Here at Omni Eye and Vision, we are vocal about the need for all our valued customers to have a yearly eye exam, but why is it so important? We want you to understand what the benefits of doing so are, as well as the potential risks of not coming in for your annual visit.
There are two features of our eye exam Kaien Island that are essential. First is to test your vision. And the second is to screen you for common eye diseases. It’s here that some people misunderstand. They think that if they are feeling well and have no symptoms, then there is no cause to come in for a checkup. The reasons this is a dangerous assumption is that glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts all develop and then advance through their early stages free of obvious signs that would alert you. That’s bad enough, but the effects of these diseases in their later stages range from permanent vision loss and complete blindness to optic nerve damage and ruptured ocular blood vessels. Our eye exam Kaien Island detects the listed conditions in a timely manner so that the applicable treatment and management options are put into action. Your vision is the other important reason. It evolves and is undergoing near constant change, and unfortunately for the worse. That may mean that you need an update to your existing prescription, or if you’ve never worn eyeglasses or contacts before, that you need them for the first time. Some are fortunate to go for life without needing corrective eyewear, but most people need it sooner or later. Of course, our eye doctor will write you a prescription that our optical department reliably fills.
