Why You Need to Book a Comprehensive Eye Examination


For those of us blessed with healthy eyes, it's normal to forget about the importance of a routine eye examination. However, timely detection of any eye or vision problems is necessary to keeping your eyes healthy. This can easily be done with an annual eye exam.


Numerous optical diseases don't have any apparent symptoms. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can schedule a thorough eye exam at our office in Clarksville, IN , with our experienced optometric team. Our Clarksville vision center uses cutting-edge equipment ensuring a complete examination.


Unfortunately, over than three million Americans have glaucoma, the main source of vision loss but only half of them know it. Glaucoma is often nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can strike absent of forewarning. The majority of adult Americans fail to use visual aids and don't schedule regular eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at risk.


Even worse, many Americans lack knowledge about the truth about glaucoma. In a poll, the American Optometric Association reported that well over half of Americans are under the false impression that glaucoma can be prevented. In actuality the disease is unpreventable, while it is treatable if diagnosed in the early stages, which makes regular screening even more important. Early diagnosis is also critical for thwarting the harmful outcomes of eye conditions including macular degeneration and cataracts.


Regular eye and vision examinations to check for eye and vision problems should be a priority. Be sure to set up regular eye exams with your local optometrist to keep up your vision and eye health for years to come.
