The health of your eyes is our one and only priority at Your Eye Specialists, which is why we cannot stress enough the necessity of routine eye exams. Our process is simple, painless, and invaluable to your eye health. An eye exam will ensure that your eyes are in top condition and allow you to promptly take care of any issues that are discovered. Here are three of the many reasons that you should incorporate a routine eye exam into your schedule.

Family History

If you have a family history of eye conditions, there is an increased urgency for routine appointments. As you age, the risk for conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration go up substantially. A basic eye exam will allow your doctor to determine if these conditions are present and help you be proactive about treatment if they are.

Eyes Change Constantly

If glasses or contact lenses are an everyday accessory for you, you’ve probably experienced multiple prescription changes as you’ve aged. This is normal, but it only further emphasizes that regular eye exams are needed in order to guarantee that vision changes do not impact your driving or your everyday life. It is a matter of safety.

Eye Coordination

In an eye exam, your doctor will have you follow a light or an object with your eyes to make sure your eye muscles are working properly. The are important muscles to check when determining eye health and should be monitored regularly by your doctor to ensure everything is functioning appropriately.
