Getting regular eye exams can often prevent visual loss and even blindness later in life. Many eye diseases such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts can be managed more efficiently when caught early.
Someone once said that the eye is the window to the soul. Although that may be debatable, the eye does give us a window into the structure and function of the blood vessels and nerves that can indicate signs of systemic disease. Adults forty and older should have their eyes checked every year. If an eye disease is present, more frequent eye exams may be necessary. Schedule your exam with Ophthalmology Consultants today.
