It is more widely understood today that preventive care is vital to the ongoing maintenance of health. In addition to yearly physicals, there are screenings that are recommended for the early detection of diseases that can be more easily treated when caught in a timely manner. Here at Evanston Eyecare, we are just as dedicated when it comes to your vision and your ocular wellness. We want you, our valued customer, to understand why a yearly eye examination is important so that you’ll gladly make time for it in your busy schedule.
Can you honestly say that your vision is as good as it can possibly be? Even if you already wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, if they’re a year old or more, there is very likely some room for improvement. And for those who have no corrective eyewear at all, the degrading of your vision can often be so gradual that you don’t even realize you cannot see as well as you used to. It’s not uncommon for people to be astounded at how good their vision is after getting prescription lenses as the result of our Rogers Park eye test. There is more reason, though, than simply getting vision correction. Glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy are typical conditions that all share one crucial aspect: they require our Rogers Park eye test to diagnose them before they become advanced. That’s because symptoms do not appear until the later stages. By then, the risk of harm to your eyes and/or vision loss, both of which may be irreversible, has grown to an alarming point. Why take such a risk?
When you come in once per year for our Rogers Park eye test, you won’t have to take unnecessary chances. You’ll be sure that you are enjoying optimal vision, and that your eyes are either healthy, or that everything possible is being done to treat and manage any eye disease.
