When we have eyes that are in good condition, it's common to overlook the importance of taking preemptive action namely, an eye examination. Nevertheless, early detection of any eye or vision problems is necessary to maintaining healthy vision and eyes. And all it takes is a simple eye exam.
A significant number of eye and vision problems are a-symptomatic. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of vision loss, affecting over three million Americans. Frequently nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can impair vision without any symptoms. Most adult Americans fail to use visual aids and don't schedule comprehensive eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at great danger.
The problem is that the majority of adults are not informed that blinding conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration are often a-symptomatic and without a comprehensive exam are often diagnoses only after it's too advanced.
Early eye disease screening should be a priority. Be sure to set up regular eye exams with your local optometrist to maintain your vision and eye health for years to come.
