Getting a regular eye exam is important not only to ensure clear vision but to also protect the health of your eyes. An eye exam includes a variety of tests that look for signs of eye disease as well as vision problems. By spotting issues early, we can provide treatment when it is most effective. That is why we encourage all of our patients to get an eye exam at least once a year.
Vision exams are the most common reason to visit an eye doctor. At Shreveport Eye Clinic, we are well-equipped to examine your vision and give you an accurate prescription to ensure you achieve the best possible vision. Once we determine your prescription, we will discuss your options for glasses and/or contact lenses and get you fitted with the vision correction solutions you need.
The Importance of Annual Eye Exams
An annual eye exam allows us to detect the early signs of eye disease – often before they start to create symptoms. Some eye diseases can do real damage before you start to notice symptoms, but with regular eye exams, we can detect most eye diseases in their very early stages and begin treatment when it is most likely to help save your vision and the health of your eyes.
There are a number of different eye diseases that can make it harder to see, and many of them will eventually destroy your vision if left untreated. Some of these eye diseases include:
- Diabetic Retinopathy
- Macular Degeneration
- Dry Eye
