For those of us with healthy eyes, we might miss the importance of taking preventative action namely, an optical exam. However, timely diagnosis of eye disease is critical to maintaining healthy vision and eyes. And all it requires is a yearly eye exam.
Numerous eye and vision diseases are a-symptomatic. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist.

Glaucoma affects more than three million Americans as the main cause of blindness. Glaucoma is often nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can impair vision absent of signs. More than half of adults in America fail to use eye glasses or contacts and don't schedule regular eye exams, therefore leaving their eyes at substantial danger.
Research shows that many Americans lack knowledge about the seriousness of glaucoma. In a recent study, the American Optometric Association found that 67% of Americans are under the false impression that glaucoma can be prevented. In truth the sight-stealing disease is unpreventable, while it can be treated if diagnosed in the early stages, which makes early detection much more crucial. Early detection and treatment are also critical for halting the damaging symptoms of other eye diseases including macular degeneration and cataracts.
Early eye disease detection should be a priority. Be sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local optometrist in order to ensure your vision and eye health for years to come.
