If you haven’t been to the eye doctor in a while for a Ponte Vedra eye exam, you should book an appointment with an experienced eye doctor as soon as you can. Getting an annual eye examination at a quality eye care practice like Quality Eye Care is important to do even if you don’t have any symptoms or vision problems.
There is a misconception that that eye exams are only needed if there are noticeable vision problems or if there is an acute eye problem such as an eye infection. This is not the case at all. Everyone, regardless of their age, needs to get a regularly scheduled comprehensive eye exam. The exam needs to be performed on average every year. The only exception is if one has eye problems or if the eye doctor recommends a different Ponte Vedra eye exam appointment schedule. When you get you eye exam on an annual basis, it enables the eye doctor enough time to detect eye diseases or conditions quickly enough for early diagnosis and treatment. Early treatment of eye conditions is very important because conditions are easier to treat in the beginning stages and early treatment allows for the best possible outcome. Also, many eye conditions don’t have any symptoms until more advanced stages. During your annual exam, you eye doctor will evaluate you for many things. The exam is an important tool for measuring your eye health and goes well beyond checking you for refraction errors, so he can provide you with the appropriate prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses. Your eye doctor will screen you for serious eye diseases and conditions that left untreated can steal your eye sight like glaucoma and macular degeneration.
