The Importance of Regular Eye Exams

Like our homes or cars, our vision benefits from regular checkups and maintenance. In fact, the more regularly you have your eyes checked, the more easily you can begin to treat any issues that pop up. At Eye Care Physicians & Surgeons of New Jersey, you can find thorough and high-quality eye care from your regular eye exams with our team of knowledgeable eye doctors.

You Can Catch Symptoms Early

Regular eye exams aren’t just recommended for those experiencing vision problems. They’re a crucial part of maintaining your eye health. Many common eye diseases don’t present symptoms until they’ve progressed significantly. By scheduling a routine eye exam, at least once a year, you can take proactive steps to protect your sight from these stealthy conditions.

You Can Track Disease Progression

If your eye doctor notices symptoms of an eye disease, regular exams can help you track its progression and plan your treatment accordingly. This helps your eye doctor notice if your disease suddenly progresses significantly and requires intervention.

You Can Be Proactive About Treatment

Some eye diseases can only be treated with surgery, while others offer alternatives. In some cases, you can prevent the need for surgery if you begin treatment early enough. In this case, your treatment will be most successful if your diagnosis is caught early – hence regular checkups where your eye doctor can catch the earliest symptoms.

You Can Detect Other Health Problems

Some health problems, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, can be detected by your eye doctor – even before your regular physician! When looking at the retina and other structures of the eye, your eye doctor can find problems with your circulatory system if they’re present. Additionally, some health problems produce symptoms that affect the vision and eye anatomy. Your eye doctor can help you be proactive about your overall health, not just your eye health.

You Can Save Your Vision

In their later stages, some eye diseases can result in vision loss entirely. In these cases, getting treatment right away is the best way to save your vision (or as much of it as possible). Don’t wait until you’ve begun losing your vision to get treatment – by then, it may already be too late.
