Do I really need an eye exam?
If you see clearly you may think you don’t even need a regular eye exam but that’s not the case. Some vision and health problems show up in eye exams before vision is affected, so it’s important to have regular eye exams. Vision robbing diseases such as glaucoma often have no warning signs. Your eyes are often a window into your overall health as well, having them checked regularly can help detect signs of disease early on. Diseases and conditions that may present as vision issues include: diabetes, muscular dystrophy, tumour and stroke.
