For those of us who have eyes that are in good condition, it's common to overlook the importance of a routine eye examination. However, timely detection of eye disease is critical to keeping your eyes healthy. This can easily be done with an eye test.
A significant number of optical diseases don't have any apparent symptoms. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can schedule a comprehensive optical examination at our Mesa, AZ office, with our highly-trained optometry staff. Our Mesa vision center uses the latest technology ensuring a thorough eye exam.
Unfortunately, more than three million Americans suffer from glaucoma, the main source of vision loss but only half of them know it. Often called ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can cause significant harm without any symptoms. Most adults in America don't use eye glasses or contacts and don't get comprehensive eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at risk.
The problem is that the majority of people are not aware that vision threatening diseases like glaucoma and cataracts often have no early symptoms and without a routine exam are frequently discovered only when it's too advanced.
Regular eye and vision examinations to screen for eye disease should be on your check list. Make sure to set up regular eye exams with your local eye doctor in order to ensure your vision and eye health for years to come.
