A regular eye exam is very important to detect eye conditions in the early stages. Eye exams will find out certain eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration which will lead to vision loss. Eye doctors perform routine and focused eye exams to determine eye health and diagnose any eye disease. Keeping an eye on your vision health will give you enormous returns for life.
There are many eye diseases that will go unnoticed for years before causing problems to your vision. Your vision changes over time, the reason why it is necessary to visit your Optometrist. From the start of childhood and adolescence the demands on a child’s vision grow as the print in textbooks shrinks and the amount of time spent studying increases. Learning will be difficult when there are vision problems present. During young adulthood, it is essential to continue protecting your eyes during everyday activities to avoid worsening vision and delay age-related eye issues for as long as possible. Studies show that common eye issues from the ages of 19 to 40 are eye injuries and visual stress. And during middle adulthood you will notice mild to moderate changes in your vision that will progress overtime. You will begin having trouble seeing close-ups as when reading or working at a computer. This is a normal age-related change known as presbyopia.
And when you reach the senior age of 60 and above you will most likely experience a range of eye diseases that will cause permanent changes to your vision. Early detection of problems will more likely be treated effectively and retain good vision for longer. A yearly eye exam is recommended for all ages even if you have generally good vision. Early detection of eye diseases will maintain and preserve your eye health and vision.
