The Importance of Routine Eye Care

Eye health is an important part of your overall health and wellness. Through routine eye care and annual vision exams, your eye doctor can keep track of your eye health and visual acuity to ensure no problems are developing. At Optical Expressions, we offer comprehensive eye care services for children and adults in Scottsdale, Phoenix, and the surrounding communities. Let’s look at why routine eye care is so important for your family.

Detecting Vision Problems

Through comprehensive eye exams, your eye doctor can uncover subtle problems with your vision. Children, in particular, are often unaware that they are not seeing as well as they should. An eye exam will uncover problems with myopia, farsightedness, and astigmatism. Although good vision is important for everyone, it is especially essential for a child’s learning and development. Visual clarity is key to developing good reading, writing, motor development, and other skills children learn during their formative years.

Detecting Eye Health Issues

Eye exams help your eye doctor detect signs of eye conditions and diseases that pose a threat to your vision. Diseases like glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy may not show symptoms until their later stages when the damage has been done. Early detection of these diseases allows you to get early treatment to slow their progression and preserve your vision. We also offer treatment for eye health issues like dry eye, eye allergies, eye swelling, and more to improve the quality of your vision.

Hidden Medical Issues

Your eye doctor may also uncover signs of hidden medical issues like diabetes, autoimmune disorders, thyroid problems, and high blood pressure through your eye exam since symptoms of these conditions can show up in your eyes. We can alert you and your general physician to the presence of these conditions so that you can receive the proper treatment.
