"Why should I get an eye exam?"

Think of it as having an annual physical... through your eyes!

 

Even if you don't need glasses or contacts - or think your current ones are doing just fine - your eye exam can reveal any of a host of unknown health issues such as

  • diabetes,

  • high blood pressure

  • degeneration of the macula (central vision area)

  • and even cancer. 

Seeing an eye doctor regularly should be part of your annual overall health checkups.   Be proactive.  Think prevention and early detection.

We see it too many times:  What you don't know CAN hurt you.
