Taking care of your eyes and vision is vital in maintaining your overall health. At 20/20 Eyevenue, serving Broomfield, Denver, and Westminster, CO, our optometrists can help you with all your eye and vision care needs. It is important to get an eye exam annually so we can determine if your vision has deteriorated or if you are suffering from any eye diseases.
What to Expect in an Eye Exam
The purpose of an annual visit to our optometrist is to ensure your eyes remain healthy. We can identify and address small problems that could impede your vision before they become big issues that lead to blindness. Eye exams consist of several parts, starting with a consultation. Then, we will look at your vision, eye functioning, and eye health. This includes several tests and typically eye dilation.
Why Are Eye Exams Important?
Contrary to what some believe, annual eye exams are not solely reserved for seniors. Individuals living with diabetes need to see our eye doctor more than once a year, despite age. Children with vision problems may also need an annual visit to our optometrist.
It is a mistake to believe that eye care begins when one grows older. In many cases, eye conditions can worsen and make it more difficult for our optometrist to treat them. With early intervention, our optometrist can detect eye and vision issues early and treat them or slow their progression. Caring for your eyes with sunglasses and regular checkups in your youth is the best way to be proactive about long-term vision health.
What Should I Bring to an Eye Exam?
It is a good idea to bring your current pair of prescription glasses (if you have any) along with your family’s medical history to your first vision exam. You should also write down questions you may have regarding eyeglasses and contacts, so you do not forget to ask them during your session.
