In honor of National Eye Exam Month, Seeta Eye Centers wants to remind you just how important regular eye exams are to your health. Eye exams can detect early symptoms of eye conditions that lead to blindness or severe vision loss. These checkups may save you from losing your eyesight, especially if you’re over the age of 65. Age-related eye conditions such as cataracts or macular degeneration are two of the leading causes of blindness across America, and the beginning symptoms often go unnoticed.
Our eye doctors will look for signs of these eye conditions and more:
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism
- Crossed eyes
- Dry eye syndrome
Age-related eye diseases can lead to severe vision loss and require eye surgery to prevent blindness. If you have a history of eye-related problems in your family, you could be at an elevated risk for some of the conditions listed above.
Healthy eyes are an important aspect of your overall wellbeing. There are other health problems that can be detected during an eye exam you may not be aware of such as diabetes, skin cancer and high blood pressure.
Vision loss can have a destructive impact on your lifestyle and stop you from reading, driving and watching television. Regular eye exams can prevent vision loss and keep your eyes healthy.
