Annual eye exams are an important part of your overall health routine, and can help detect many life threatening diseases such as brian tumors, hypertension, high cholesterol, Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, stroke, Macular Degeneration, and other health problems.
Some people wait until they experience symptoms to see a doctor, but shouldn't because many eye problems are silent - meaning they have no symptoms. A recent study found that one in four adults hadn't had an eye exam in the past two years, and the same proportion were unaware that an eye exam could prevent them from losing their sight.
Too young, old, or healthy for an eye exam? Think again . . .
Healthy eating habits and a healthy lifestyle can actually affect your eyes in a positive way, but nothing can be more important to your eyesight, than regular eye checkups. The cost of vision insurance is inepensive, and well worth the investment.
