The Importance of Eye Exams
Regular eye exams are critical for maintaining the health of your eyes. During your exam, an optometrist checks for color blindness, proper eye movement and alignment and depth perception. Your doctor will likely perform tests for conditions like glaucoma and examine your eyes for early warning signs of cataracts, macular degeneration and other common vision issues.
At Meijer Optical, we take your vision very seriously, and we hope it’s important to you, too. Here are just a few facts about the importance of getting regular eye exams:
Eye exams are important even if your lens prescription doesn’t change. Your optometrist can help you with early detection of a number of health issues.
Eye exams don’t need to cost you much, especially compared to the costs of treating undetected issues after they progress to more serious conditions. At Meijer Optical, your vision insurance plan or Health Spending Account will likely cover the cost of your eye exam. Call your insurance provider for details or speak with a Meijer optician for more information.
Your child’s vision should be a top priority, and school vision tests are not comprehensive eye exams. At Meijer Optical, our exams detect issues early before they affect eye development.
Your eyesight changes gradually, but even slight issues with your vision can make a big impact on your overall well-being. Left undetected and untreated, these issues may lead to headaches or blurry vision. Comprehensive, regular eye exams, in addition to your wellness checkups, can help you avoid these issues.
