The Importance of Eye Care and Check Ups

The Importance of Eye Exams

Since your eyes are an important part of your health, it’s essential to schedule regular eye exams, as these can detect any conditions or diseases. Routine exams also allow our optometrists at Alabama Eye Clinic in Talladega, AL, see any changes in your eyes and update your prescription if necessary. Sometimes changes can happen slowly and there may not be any symptoms at first, which is why we recommend to schedule exams regularly and we can provide you with prompt treatment.

Receiving Your New Prescription

Annual eye exams are important, as they help our optometrists check for any vision problems. We can help diagnose conditions such as myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism and provide treatment. Once we determine a diagnosis, we can recommend eyeglasses or contacts that can help you see more clearly. If your current prescription is not up to date, your vision will be hindered and our optometrist can help to correct this. Along with that, if you wear contacts, you need to get new contacts every year, even if your prescription hasn't changed.

Vision Testing

People are vulnerable to many eye conditions and diseases. Some of these, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration, can also progress quickly and lead to vision loss or blindness. Whether you have any conditions or symptoms, it’s important to have your vision tested and receive treatment promptly. Early treatment can help slow down the progression of diseases and conditions and preserve your vision. Certain eye tests can also detect other diseases and can help you with getting treatment in time to keep you healthy.
