When you need eye care or have a serious eye condition that needs monitoring, make sure you are getting your eye exam every year or however often it is recommended. It might be important even if you don't wear eye glasses or contacts to get your eye exam each year. When it's time for your vision exam or eye exam, or you need to visit our optometry center before that, give us a call at our Flagstaff, AZ, office. We at Northland Eye Care are here to help.
Your Eye Exam
A big part of your annual eye care appointment is your eye exam. This can test you for a number of serious eye diseases and screen you for other ones. Our optometrist will look in your eyes and may check for problems like macular degeneration and cataracts. Then there may be tests for diseases like glaucoma. It can be important to get these eye tests and screenings because many of these diseases can be serious and take away some, or all, of your vision. Early detection may be incredibly important to your outcome. Early treatment for diseases like glaucoma can help you to keep more of your vision by stopping or slowing down the progression of them. Once vision has been lost to one of these conditions, you might not be able to get it back. For your eye health, you may need these exams.
Your Vision Exam and Vision Correction
A big part of your eye care appointments each year is to check your prescription for vision correction. If have a vision prescription, you may need a new vision exam to keep the prescription up to date. To see your best, get a fresh prescription every year. Even if yours has stayed the same for a few years, it likely won't continue that way forever. As people get older, they may need to change to bifocals or get reading glasses to compensate for the changes to their vision.
If an eye problem is found during your eye exam, you may need treatments from an optometrist. Sometimes, you may need to take a prescription medication to treat the problem. If you notice changes to your eyes or to your vision, see our optometrist for your eye care.
