Think annual comprehensive eye exams start and stop with your vision? Beyond determining if you’re seeing clearly, your eye doctor may be able to uncover dozens of health conditions not typically associated with sight — like diabetes, high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis and more. So, make sure hindsight is 20/20 by including an annual comprehensive eye exam in your annual healthcare routine.
Whether you’re looking to spend precious moments with your grandkids or take the trip of a lifetime, maintaining your overall health is vital to living life fully. And while it might not seem like it at first glance, annual comprehensive eye exams are just as important to your wellbeing as your yearly physical. You’ve been waiting for this day, so make sure you’re fit to experience it.
Let’s be clear. Taking care of your eyes today gives you a clear view of tomorrow.
One of the most common misconceptions is that if you are not experiencing noticeable vision issues, an eye exam by an eyecare professional is unnecessary, or even a waste of time and money. Comprehensive eye exams actually go beyond determining your prescription for eyeglasses or contacts. Eye doctors are often the first healthcare professionals to detect systemic conditions, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure (hypertension), diabetes, lupus, risk of stroke and even some cancers.
