When we have healthy eyes, we may forget about the importance of taking preventative action such as an optical exam. However, timely diagnosis of eye disease is critical to maintaining healthy eyes. This can easily be done with an annual eye test.
A significant number of optical diseases don't have any apparent symptoms. Therefore, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Call to schedule a complete optical examination at our Kenosha office, with our highly-trained optometric team. Our Kenosha practice employs cutting-edge equipment to provide you with a complete eye exam.
Unfortunately, over than three million Americans have glaucoma, the main source of blindness but only 50% of them are aware. Frequently nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can cause significant harm without any signs. The majority of adult Americans fail to use corrective lenses and don't receive regular eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at substantial risk.
The danger is that most people don't realize that vision threatening conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration are often a-symptomatic and without a routine eye exam are frequently found only after it's too late.
Routine eye examinations to screen for eye and vision problems should be on your to-do list. Make sure to set up regular eye exams with your local optometrist to maintain healthy eyes for many long years.
