Importance of Eye & Vision Exams

Importance of Eye Health and Vision Exams in Charlotte, Harrisburg (Rocky River) and Davidson

Have you had a vision and eye health exam in the past year? If not, then it may be time to schedule an appointment with a trusted optometrist. Regardless of your vision quality, it's recommended that you have annual eye health exams and vision exams throughout your life. In fact, in some cases, it may even be recommended that you have exams more than once per year.

Why Eye Exams Matter

Many people make the mistaken assumption that eye exams are only useful for determining whether or not you need glasses. And while it's true that a vision exam can help make sure you have the right prescription lenses, an eye exam can reveal so much more. In fact, a comprehensive eye exam offers a window into your overall ocular health. Some ocular diseases and other eye conditions (such as cataracts and early stages of glaucoma) can also be spotted during a routine eye exam.

What an Exam Tells our Charlotte, Harrisburg and Davidson Optometrists

You might be amazed at just how much the results of your eye exam can tell our optometrists about your overall health. At the end of your eye exam, your optometrist will review the results of each of your tests and speak with you about any potential problems. In some cases, additional testing may be required in order to diagnose or rule out specific conditions. Either way, you'll walk out of your eye exam with a much better idea of your eye and vision health.
