The Importance of Eye Exams

Posted by CooperVision on Wednesday, August 31, 2011
It's back to school time! Whether or not you're headed back to school this fall, it's a great time of year to make sure you're up-to-date with your regular health check-ups. Does your regular health check-up routine include an annual visit to your eye care practitioner? If not, read this post and be sure to schedule an appointment today. A routine comprehensive eye exam ensures good, healthy vision and can even help in detecting more serious medical conditions.

A typical eye exam will consist of several tests and may include checking for eye movement, peripheral vision, and color blindness; administering a glaucoma test; and determining the health of your optic nerve and retina. Routine eye exams can often detect early signs of vision conditions, allowing for faster treatments of most problems. Comprehensive eye exams can also reveal serious, and often times, hidden medical conditions like high blood pressure, diabetes, inflammations and infections.
