Many people think that if their eye sight is good and they don’t have any vision problems then their eyes are perfectly healthy. But, unfortunately, many a times this assumption goes wrong.
In this era children and adults are extensively and intensively using mobile, tablets, laptops and computers that cause eye sight problems. Having a routine check-up every year keeps in check the eye sight and other eye problems of children and complications in adulthood can be avoided.
In adults, the importance and advantages of regular eye exams do not decrease. If there are eye related diseases in the family, then there are more chances of occurrence of the eye problems in the coming years. It is wiser to prevent the same eye diseases beforehand. Furthermore, many eye diseases are asymptomatic and can only be detected by full professional eye exam. Ocular diseases like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration are the diseases that are asymptomatic, and vision can be saved with early diagnosis. Thus, routine eye exams must be done yearly.
Regular and comprehensive eye exams are most important in elderly people who become more susceptible to eye diseases with the growing age. Ophthalmologists recommend every six-month check-up for elderly people.
