Eye exams are essential in assessing the current status of your vision. Whether you have avoided it because you are just scared of doctors in general or if you do not think it is an important aspect of your health care. You must understand that your eyes play a major role in public health and many diseases can be detected by an eye examination.
The eye exam is basically a series of tests performed by our Optometrist, which is designed so that the patient's vision and health can be determined; tests that verify the strength and health of your eyes, which determine whether you need glasses, to test frequent eye diseases and check cases such as color blindness. It is necessary to have the examination done by a qualified Optometrist to obtain the correct and critical results and to be able to obtain the assistance you may need in relation to eye health.
Each doctor will prescribe regular eye examinations because most eye diseases have no symptoms. In addition, many serious diseases can be discovered by this study, including diabetes and MS, which may affect eye test results. By diagnosing serious diseases at an early stage, opportunities for effective treatment are greatly increased.
