When Was Your Last Eye Exam?
If you don’t remember your last eye exam, you may be passing up your best opportunity to protect your eyesight. A comprehensive eye examination by an optometrist or ophthalmologist is the only way to ensure that your eyes are healthy.
There are many conditions that threaten your eyesight, such as cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration, but there may be few symptoms in their early stages. Catching them early can result in successful treatment. Even if you think your eyes are healthy, regular eye exams are important for detecting and treating problems before they lead to vision loss.
During a comprehensive eye exam, your doctor will perform a range of eye tests to check for common conditions like myopia and astigmatism, as well as complex conditions, like glaucoma and macular degeneration, assess whether your eyes work effectively together as a team, and determine your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses, if you need them.
The optometrist or ophthalmologist will look for vision disorders, eye muscle imbalance, and any signs of eye disease that could cause problems in the future. He or she will also dilate your eyes with drops to make the pupils bigger, for a closer look into your eyes.
Your eye doctor can help detect skin cancer and thyroid disease and assist in the detection of malignant tumors. Because the eyes are the only place in the body where a doctor can examine bare blood vessels and arteries, cardiovascular conditions like hypertension and atherosclerosis can be detected, as well as signs of diseases like AIDS and leukemia.
If you are diabetic, you should schedule an annual diabetic eye exam which will help us detect changes in your eyes that could lead to loss of vision if not treated. Diabetic retinopathy, for example, is a leading cause of blindness among working-age adults.
