Annual Eye Exams and Preventive Care

We all want to stay healthy, but many people tend to overlook their eye heal. Your eye health is a vital part of your health and productivity. At Vision City of Lakeworth, we provide our patients with the preventative care they need to ensure their eyes stay healthy. Keep reading to learn more about why annual eye exams are important.

Who Needs Annual Eye Exams?

There is a huge misconception that only people with vision issues who wear eyeglasses need to have annual eye exams. The truth is a visit to the eye doctor is necessary for everyone. During an annual optometry appointment, an eye doctor will scan for possible vision problems and health issues that can affect your eyes and overall health. Everyone should schedule an annual appointment to stay up-to-date with their preventive care.

What Happens During Eye Exams?

During an eye exam, the eye doctor will first conduct a vision exam. During this screening, your vision will be tested. This will help the doctor determine if there are any issues with your eyesight. It is important to remember that not all eye health issues are related to vision. Some people may have good vision while they are still developing eye issues.

The doctor will also use the exam to screen for eye health issues. This can include screenings for macular degeneration, cataracts, and other conditions which affect the health of the eyes. Many people don't realize that during an eye exam, the optometrist can also check for other health conditions as well. The eyes can sometimes show symptoms of conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and other health problems.
