Eye and Vision Exams

Regular eye exams are often overlooked as an important part of your health care, thanks to our busy lifestyles. Just like regular visits to the dentist and general practitioner, visits to your family optometrist are just as important. Not only are eye exams instrumental for maintaining good vision and eye health, but they can detect behind-the-scenes conditions that you are unaware are even happening. Richardson Eye Associates in Richardson recommends regular eye exams for all age groups from early childhood up to your senior citizen years.

Eye and Vision Exam

Early Exams for Children

Eye exams for children are very important for detecting vision problems. The American Optometric Association recommends that children have their first comprehensive eye exam when they are six months old. Regular exams help identify common issues like myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (far-sightedness), amblyopia (lazy eye), or strabismus (crossed eyes). It is important to recognize and treat these vision problems early to prevent future progression.

Lifelong Exams for Adults and Senior Citizens

As we age, our eyes change. Whether you need prescription lenses to help you see or not, regular eye exams are key to healthy vision. Adults should have regular eye exams to update prescriptions and check for early signs of eye diseases. Glaucoma, cataracts, macular degeneration, and retinopathy have no symptoms in their early stages but through exams they can be detected and treated before they progress.

Regular Eye Exams Are Windows To Health

Your eyes are the only area of the body where your blood vessels are directly seen, making them a window to your overall health. Vision exams check your vision and also double as a comprehensive health check. Optometrists are trained to recognize health problems like hypertension and diabetes during a routine eye exam.

Technology and Eye Health

If you are like most of us, we are constantly using digital devices to get through our day. Digital eye strain, dry eye, and other eye issues because of many hours of screen time are on the rise. Regular vision exams can help address our modern-day challenges. Optometrists can provide advice on managing screen time and prescribe glasses specifically designed to reduce eye strain.
