When we have eyes that are in good condition, it's common to forget about the importance of taking preemptive steps namely, an optical examination. Nevertheless, early diagnosis of any eye or vision problems is critical to maintaining healthy vision and eyes. This can easily be done with an annual eye test.
Many optical diseases are a-symptomatic. Therefore, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can book a complete optical exam at our Bronx, NY office, with our highly-trained optometry staff. Our Bronx vision center employs the latest technology ensuring a complete eye exam.
Unfortunately, more than three million Americans have glaucoma, the main cause of blindness but only half of them realize this. Frequently called ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can cause significant damage absent of signs. Almost two-thirds of adults in America fail to use corrective lenses and don't schedule comprehensive eye exams, thus leaving their eyes at greater risk.
The unfortunate fact is that the majority of Americans are not informed that vision threatening conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration often have no early symptoms and without a comprehensive exam are often diagnoses only after it's too late.
Regular eye and vision exams to screen for eye and vision problems should be on your check list. Make sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local optometrist in order to maintain healthy eyes for many long years.
