A yearly eye exam is highly recommended for all adults. Not only will you have your vision tested to determine if you need new or updated corrective lenses, but you will also be screened for common eye diseases; ones which don’t have any obvious symptoms until they reach an advanced stage. In addition, though, our Edgewater eye exam can detect early signs of diseases not related to your eyes. At Cliffside Park Eye Associates, your ocular health is our top priority, and we can also promote your overall health.
How is your vision right now? Unless you’re sure that it’s excellent, you might be able to benefit from eyeglasses or contact lenses. Certainly, sub par vision should be corrected, but even if your vision is okay, with the results of our Edgewater eye exam, your vision can be improved to be much better than that. You already wear corrective lenses? Maybe you could use an adjustment to the prescription to account for changes to your vision since you got them. Glaucoma and cataracts are two of the eye diseases that you should be tested for once per year. They can affect you regardless of your age or other circumstances. If diabetic retinopathy or macular degeneration are applicable to your situation, you will also be tested for them. Remember, early detection is closely associated with the best outcomes, and with common eye diseases, waiting until you experience symptoms means waiting until there has already been damage to your eyes or loss of vision. Our Edgewater eye exam can also indicate the first signs of diabetes and high cholesterol, speaking of early detection. Discovering that information in a timely manner will allow you to seek out treatment and management options before you suffer any harm.
When you consider all of the good reasons, this is the ideal time to call our office and book an appointment to come in for an eye examination.
