The American Optometric Association (AOA) recommends a yearly eye exam for adults – not only to detect and to diagnose vision changes or problems – but, also to maintain the health of your eyes. Many diseases of the eye (such as glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic eye disease) have no symptoms until extensive damage has been done. Regular vision examinations are also important for the prevention of vision problems created or aggravated by today’s academic and professional demands.
21st century lifestyles demand more from our vision than ever before. Adults in our technological society constantly use their near vision at work and at home. Environmental stresses on the visual system (including excessive computer use or close work) can sometimes induce headaches and/or visual difficulties which can be effectively treated with corrective lenses and/or Vision Therapy.
