Keeping your eyes healthy begins with the practice of having regular or comprehensive eye exams. Just like dental checkups, a comprehensive eye exam consists of several tests to assess your eye health and treat early signs of vision problems. It can also help detect eye diseases.
Most eye diseases, like diabetic eye disease and glaucoma, have no apparent symptoms or warning signs and, without an eye checkup, patients learn about the condition when it’s too late. The results of the eye checkup will determine your propensity for eye disease or if your eyes simply need the right eyewear to function well.
