Make Eye Exams A Regular Part of Your Health Plan
Just as getting an annual physical is important to your overall health and well-being, getting eye exams on a regular basis is paramount to maintaining healthy vision. Indeed, according to the American Optometric Association, having your eyesight screened annually—and at any age—can help stave off potential eye diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy. It can even help promote a healthier life, in general, by giving practitioners an early indication of potential debilitating conditions such as high blood pressure and heart disease. When you’re looking for an optometrist in the North Las Vegas and Summerlin areas who specializes in this type of care, look no further than Progressive Eyecare.
Healthy Vision Equals a Healthy You
Often taken for granted, your eyesight is integral to your health and, as such, should be well taken care of. That means ensuring that your eyes are screened annually—not just by your physician, but by licensed optometrists who are trained to watch out for certain characteristics and abnormalities. Specifically, a thorough eye exam may uncover the following conditions:
- Refractive errors, such as farsightedness, nearsightedness, and astigmatism
- Strabismus, which is commonly known as crossed or turned eyes
- Amblyopia, which is characterized by misaligned eyes or refractive errors in eyesight
- Other diseases such as high cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetes
