When we have healthy eyes, we might miss the importance of a routine eye examination. However, timely detection of eye disease is necessary to keeping your eyes healthy. And all it takes is an annual eye exam.
A significant number of optical problems are a-symptomatic. Therefore, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can book a comprehensive optical exam at our Westerville or Johnstown offices, with our highly-trained optometry staff. Our vision centers uses cutting-edge technology ensuring a complete eye exam.
Glaucoma strikes over three million Americans proving to be the main cause of vision loss. Frequently nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can cause substantial harm without any symptoms. More than half of adults in America don't use corrective lenses and don't receive comprehensive eye exams, thus putting their eyes at great risk.
To make matters worse, many Americans lack knowledge about the seriousness of glaucoma. In a poll, the American Optometric Association determined that two-thirds of Americans are under the false impression that glaucoma can be prevented. In reality the disease is unpreventable, although it can be treated if recognized during the beginning phases, making early detection all the more critical. Early detection is also critical for halting the harmful effects of additional eye conditions including macular degeneration or cataracts.
Early eye disease detection should be on your to-do list. Make sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local optometrist in order to maintain healthy eyes for years to come.
