The Importance of Annual Eye Exams

Many people wait until they notice a problem with their eyesight before they schedule an eye exam. Maybe their glasses seem outdated, their contacts a little dry, or they are squinting to see signs at night.  Whatever the reason, if you can’t remember the last time you had an eye exam, it’s probably time to get one scheduled with your optometrist in Searcy.  Scheduling annual eye exams in Searcy for the entire family can help avoid vision problems and keep your eyes healthy.

Benefits of Yearly Visits with Your Searcy Optometrist

Searcy Eye Care and Vision Therapy Center, your Searcy optometrist, recommends that everyone in the family have an eye exam each year. Even if you notice zero problems with your eyesight or receive an “all-clear” from an outside vision screening, a comprehensive eye exam is still necessary.  During a comprehensive exam, your Searcy eye doctor will

  • Conduct diagnostic tests that screen for eye diseases such as glaucoma or macular degeneration which, if left untreated, can lead to loss of vision. The earlier these conditions are diagnosed and treated the better chance one has of retaining his or her sight.  These diseases often progress rapidly with few symptoms in their initial stages but are easily discovered during an exam.
  • Look for signs of vision imbalance or disorders that can be treated with vision therapy to improve eyesight.
  • Conduct a comprehensive medical history and look for signs of chronic disease such as diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure which can all affect eyesight and health.

Most people equate a visit to a Searcy optometry office with poor eyesight, but the truth is, a comprehensive exam is more than a vision screening.
