Eye exams help children succeed in school!
Did you know that 80 percent of what a child is expected to learn requires good vision? An annual eye exam is the only way to ensure that your child is seeing clearly and comfortably to succeed in the classroom. It’s very important to any child who is participating in sports, so their vision is good and they can play at the top of their game! Schedule regular eye appointments for your children!
As long as I can see well I don't need to get my eyes checked right?
As much as we would like to believe this to be true, it is not. A comprehensive vision exam, the doctor is checking your overall eye health in general. During these exams doctors can find early signs of other medical issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol. Eye Exams are an important part of preventative & routine care for your overall health!

Approximately 80% of what children learn is through their eyes. Impaired vision can affect a child's cognitive, emotional, neurologic, and physical development by potentially limiting his or her exposure to a range of experiences and information. Schedule their eye exams at six months, between two and three years old, and before kindergarten.
One in four school-age children have some form of a vision problem. Studies show that 60% of students identified as problem learners have undetected vision troubles. Schedule their eye exam once a year, and try to do it at the beginning of the school year to insure you give your child a healthy start.
Even if you have had laser vision surgery or have naturally good vision, you still need an annual exam. More than four million Americans over the age of 40 have some form of vision impairment. More than two-thirds of Americans report experiencing symptoms of digital eye strain. Schedule your eye exam once a year.
As we age, we're more prone to cataracts, glaucoma, and macular degeneration. Macular degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss, and blindness among Americans age 65 and older. Glaucoma affects more than 3 million Americans, but only half are aware they have the disease because the symptoms are so subtle. Schedule your eye exam once a year.
Diabetes is one of th etop three causes of blindness in the United States. And, most diabetes-related blindness can be prevented by an annual eye exam. Schedule your eye exam once per year so that if you are experience health complications such as diabetes, or high blodd pressure, they can be detected & treated early.
- Contact Lens Wearers
Contact lenses are medical devices. That's why regular eye exams with an eye care provider to review your prescription are important. Schedule your eye exam once per year.
