The Importance of Eye Care


It is important for everyone to make sure that they take care of their eyes. This starts by making an annual visit to the eye doctor on time every year. At this visit, the eye doctor is going to take a look at someone’s visual acuity, trying to identify any problems that might be present. In addition, the eye doctor is going to provide something called anticipatory guidance, educating the patient about potential issues that might arise and how to address them.

In addition, one of the most important parts of the preventative visit is that this provides an opportunity for the eye doctor to catch and treat potential eye problems before they start to cause serious symptoms. The eye doctor will take a look at the retina, measure the pressure behind the eyes, and analyze the optic nerves. This is done in addition to checking each visual field individually. This gives the eye doctor an opportunity to potentially save someone’s vision.


These are only a few of the many reasons why it is important for someone to make a visit to a trained optometrist at an optometry clinic on a regular basis.
