Routine eye exams are the key to safeguarding your precious vision. An eye exam is not just for determining whether you need glasses, but also for the detection of eye disease, many of which have no symptoms and can go unnoticed before it’s too late.
In fact, an eye exam can save more than just your vision by exposing other health conditions that you may not even be aware of, such as:
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Autoimmune disorders, such as Lupus
- High cholesterol
- Thyroid disease
- Cancer, such as ocular and basal cell carcinomas
