Patients often ask why eye exams are required every year to two years. Comprehensive eye exams are part of preventative health care and help your optometrist ensure that the health of your eyes is maintained.
During your eye exam, the optometrist will diagnose, treat and help prevent diseases and disorders affecting the visual system, the eye and related structures. The optometrist can also provide referrals to specialists and can help manage post-eye-surgery health. From infants to grade-schoolers through to grandparents, Doctors of Optometry not only ensure quality of vision and eye health, but quality of life.
