How often should you go to the eye doctor?
It’s been said that our eyes are “the window to our soul”. That’s because an annual eye exam can show overall health problems. During a comprehensive eye exam your optometrist will be able to evaluate the health of your blood vessels and any underlying health issues. Diabetes and high cholesterol are some of the conditions that can be detected by observing blood vessels in your eyes. Eye issues can also be prevented or corrected if caught early.
So even when you think your eyes are healthy, an eye exam is good for your overall health. Most optometrists recommend that you get your eyes checked every year. Even children should get annual eye exams starting as early as three years old. No matter your age schedule your eye exam today with your Ormond Beach eye doctor and get a jump start on your overall health.
