Maintaining Healthy Sight
We all want to protect our eyesight and overall health for ourselves and our family - that is why annual eye exams are important. Regular eye care and exams can protect and prevent many eye diseases, if detected early. Today, a whole range of eye problems can be treated successfully without total vision loss. In addition, many vision problems begin at an early age, so it's important for children to receive proper eye care from the time they are infants.

Having an annual eye exam is crucial in protecting your and your family’s eyesight. These annual exams allow your doctor to detect changes in the front of your eye so alterations can be made to your eyeglass or contact lens prescription.
Your eyes are working from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep. Your eyes take in an enormous amount of information about the world around you – shapes, colors, movements, and more. They then send the information to your brain, where it's processed, so the brain knows what's going on outside of your body.
Many vision problems begin at an early age, so it is important for children to receive proper eye care. Early detection and treatment are essential in preventing conditions that could potentially cause problems or permanent vision loss. The American Optometric Association recommends that every child has a professional eye exam shortly after birth, by six months of age and again just prior to entering school. Once in school, children should receive annual eye exams.
You can protect yourself against vision loss by working in partnership with your eye care professional. Ask questions and get the information you need to take care of yourself and your family.
