You may think you only need an eye exam when you start having trouble seeing, but that's not the case. An eye examination is a necessary part of your overall health care and should be done at least once a year. Our experienced Optometrist at Bay Optical can detect many diseases and disorders of the eye early, providing the opportunity for treatment before it is too late. Whether you need an updated prescription or other eye care services, our Glens Falls, Saratoga, Greenwich, and Warrensburg clinics are here to help.
What Is an Eye Exam?
Our optometrists will provide a complete evaluation of your eye health and vision during this appointment. Examinations, including early diagnosis and treatment, can address a variety of eye-related concerns. Exams help you maintain optimal vision and eye health, and they also look for signs of eye diseases that may not be so obvious. Each eye exam includes an assessment of your health history, visual acuity, and more.
What Are the Benefits of Eye Exams?
- Eye exams can help our optometrists detect and treat diseases and other abnormalities before they become serious problems.
- They are an essential part of your regular health care routine, as it is one of the simplest and most effective ways to keep your eyes healthy and working properly.
- Like all types of examinations, eye exams allow our doctors to monitor the health of your eyes, giving you the reassurance that everything is working as it should.
- It is crucial for contact lens wearers, as visual defects can significantly impact their vision, and wearing contacts under these conditions will only aggravate this issue. This also applies to eyeglasses, especially if the glasses are required to correct a particular vision defect.
How Often Should You Go for Eye Exams?
Optometrists recommend eye exams at least once every year regardless of your general health or age. However, some people may need to go in more often if they are at risk for glaucoma or other diseases. That's why it's important to discuss with our optometrist how often exams are needed during your next appointment.
