Although Optometrists in Canada usually recommend a comprehensive eye exam every 12 to 24 months, commonly many people with perfect eyesight do not feel the necessity for an eye exam. Here are the top reasons why everyone should get their eyes tested regularly:
1. Early detection: As part of the eye exam Optometrists check for various eye conditions which can go undetected until they reach an advanced stage. Glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and macular degeneration are some examples. If not detected in time there may be irreversible damage to the eyes which may also lead to blindness in some cases.
2. Children may not understand and/or be able to explain blurry vision: There are frequent instances where parents are confident of their child’s perfect eye. We have seen many parents being surprised that their child does not have 20/20 eye sight. A through checkup of the overall eye health can help the child with seeing clearly. Additionally, the Optometrist can also counsel the parents and child on preventative measures to keep the eye sight from weakening further.
3. Seniors are especially prone to various issues which are not related to clear vision. A comprehensive examination of the overall eye health can help seniors limit the risk of developing vision-robbing, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
Even if everything perfect, an Optometrist can provide guidance on ways to maintain that perfect eye sight and keep potential ocular issues at bay.
