The importance of your eyes is beyond measure, and yet it’s not always easy to find the time for a recommended yearly comprehension eye exam. Our San Antonio optometrist is dedicated to helping you to have the highest level of optical well-being and the best vision that you’re capable of. Therefore, if you have not had an eye exam within the last twelve months, we urge you to schedule one with us. This will accomplish two vital goals: first, it will determine if you need corrective lenses or an update your existing prescription. Second, you will be screened for common eye diseases. And since most of them do not have any noticeable symptoms during their early stages, it is essential to get a checkup annually. Remember, timely detection is strongly associated with the best outcomes.
Your busy life keeps your eyes busy all the time. From driving to reading, working in front of a computer, watching TV, sports, or any number of daily tasks and activities, the last thing you need is to strain to see effectively. You could even experience headaches. A comprehensive eye exam by our San Antonio optometrist will reveal if you are nearsighted, farsighted, have an astigmatism, or some combination of those. Eyeglasses or contact lenses will make your vision sharper and clearer, letting you meet the challenges of your daily life more easily. And if you have an existing prescription, remember that your vision needs are always evolving. Perhaps an update to your prescription is just what you need.
As for eye diseases, our San Antonio optometrist will do a thorough check of your eyes from the corneas in front to the retinas in back. Baseline tests include tonometry for glaucoma and a slit lamp exam for cataracts. Your eye muscles and eyelids and other key parts your eyes will also be examined. In fact, the blood vessels in your retinas can even offer important clues to your overall health by indicating the presence of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. With all of those benefits listed, there is every reason to carve out some time for getting an eye exam.
