Look Out for Your Eyes

Getting a regular eye exam by an optometrist or ophthalmologist (eye doctor) should be on everyone’s calendar. Even if you think your vision is fine, you could be developing an eye disease and not know it. Some diseases have no symptoms at first, when early treatment is the most effective.

Your eye doctor can give you a comprehensive dilated eye exam (using painless eye drops) to check for common eye disorders, which include:

  •  Cataracts
  •  Diabetic retinopathy
  •  Glaucoma
  •  Age-related macular degeneration
