We observe National Eye Exam Month in August by educating ourselves about ways to keep our vision healthy and clear. It is important to have your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist on a regular basis. Having regular eye exams can detect early signs of eye disease and vision damage.
How to observe National Eye Exam Month
- Get your eyes examined by an ophthalmologist
- Make sure you have the right prescription
- Encourage others to get eye exams
- Don’t forget about your kid’s eyes!
Clear vision is important for a long healthy life. With advancements in today’s vision correction, poor vision is a thing of the past. Eye exams can reveal more than simply the health of your eyes. They can identify serious diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and glaucoma to name a few. Did you know that about 12 million Americans require vision correction?
It is estimated that half of the children under the age of 12 have never had an eye exam. Don’t forget about your children!
The best part about today’s vision medicine is that most vision problems are avoidable and curable!
