It’s unbelievable to think that many patients will go without getting their eye exam because they feel that they don’t have the time, or they cannot afford it if insurance won’t pay for it. Your eye health is important, and if you don’t get your eyes checked yearly as you would your teeth, then you could put yourself at risk for eye strain, reduced vision or something much more serious. Master Eye Associates encourages all of their patients to get regular eye exams so that they can protect their vision. The Importance of Getting a Regular Eye Exam
Although most people may think that eye doctors do nothing but deal with appointments of people needing glasses and contacts, they actually do a whole lot more. Even general eye evaluations entail examining the health of the eye and looking for any potential concerns. Take for example, someone needing contacts for the first time; in addition to the evaluation, the doctor will need to provide additional services. This can include training on how to insert and remove contacts and providing general care information as well as diagnosing and solving any fit problems. They also need to know which type of contacts would be best for their patient as there are many varieties, including toric, multifocal, soft disposable, keratoconus, rigid gas permeable, monovision and irregular-shaped lenses for individuals with corneas that have suffered disease or surgery.
