Yearly Eye Care Maintenance
Most people know the value of getting their car tuned up every year. And they realize that for healthy teeth they should visit their dentist annually. Yet many of the same people put off going to the eye doctor because they don’t recognize how important an annual eye exam is for maintaining clear vision and overall health.
Good visual health is critical to your quality of life. It allows you to see the world around you and enjoy everyday activities like driving, reading, watching TV and playing sports. According to the National Eye Institute, more than 11 million Americans have an uncorrected visual impairment that can impact their quality of life, and in some cases lead to more serious eye conditions. That’s why it is important to see an eye doctor regularly.
What should you do?
Visit your eye doctor every year for a comprehensive eye exam. This will help protect one of the most valuable assets you have: your vision. comprehensive eye exams include pupil dilation, retinal examination, glaucoma testing, visual field tests, eye muscle tests and standard vision tests. With proper vision maintenance, you can look forward to a lifetime of healthy sight.
Not sure if you have vision coverage?
Check with your employer. Then, schedule your yearly eye exam and start seeing the world around you a little more clearly.
