Why it’s important to have regular eye exams
Eye exams are not just about improving your vision. That may seem like a strange declaration from a Toronto optometrist office but it is important to us that you are aware of the connection between your eye health and your overall health. Diseases such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis are often first discovered through changes in vision. Neurological impairment also affects vision. Factors that limit visual clarity are located in the retina or the brain and can be caused by brain damage, such as from traumatic brain injury or stroke which is why changes in vision should be taken seriously and why it’s vital to your well-being to have regular eye exams.
