by | Jul 10, 2014 | Health

People say that your eyes are the window to your soul. Your eyes are also your window to the outside world. It is because of your eyes that you can see your loved ones, a beautiful sunset, or a famous painting. Because your sight is so very important, it is necessary to keep your eyes healthy.

Some people only visit the eye doctor when they are having problems with their vision that require eye glasses. What many people do not know is that you should see your eye doctor every year, whether you are having vision problems or not. An annual eye exam can show other medical conditions that may be existing that you do not even know about. During an eye exam, the optometrist is checking more than just your vision. It is especially important for the elderly to see an eye doctor regularly, as they are prone to diseases of the eye such as glaucoma and cataracts.

During an annual eye exam, your optometrist will determine whether or not you would benefit from wearing eye glasses. Whether you need glasses for reading, or distance, or both, glasses can have you seeing better than you ever thought that you could. If you need glasses, you can sit down with a trained optician to find the frame that best fits your face.

If you need a vision prescription, and decide that you would rather wear contact lenses instead of eye glasses, an optometrist can fit you for contacts, and discuss which type are best for you. There are different types of contacts. You can wear contacts that you change daily, weekly, biweekly, and monthly. You can also wear contacts that you can leave in your eyes for thirty days straight. Your optometrist would discuss your options, and help you decide which is best for you. If you are a first time contact lens wearer, your optometrist or one of the technicians can teach you how to put the contacts in, take them out, and care for them.
The health of your eyes is extremely important. The professionals at Family Vision Centers are there to help you with all of your vision needs.
