When we have eyes that are in good condition, it's common to forget about the importance of a routine eye exam. However, timely diagnosis of any eye or vision problems is necessary to keeping your eyes healthy. This can easily be done with an eye test.
Many eye and vision diseases don't have any apparent signs. Therefore, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can book a comprehensive eye examination at our Nashua office, with our highly-trained optometry staff. Our Nashua office uses cutting-edge equipment ensuring a complete examination.
Glaucoma is the leading cause of vision loss, resulting in loss of sight for over three million Americans. Often referred to as ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can strike without any signs. Almost two-thirds of adult Americans don't use visual aids and don't get regular eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at danger.
Research shows that many Americans lack knowledge about the facts about glaucoma. In a recent poll, the American Optometric Association reported that well over half of Americans are under the false impression that glaucoma can be prevented. In truth the sight-stealing disease cannot be prevented, although it can be treated if caught close to the onset of the disease, which makes regular examination all the more important. Early diagnosis is also crucial for thwarting the harmful symptoms of additional eye conditions such as macular degeneration and cataracts.
Regular eye examinations to screen for eye and vision problems should be on your check list. Be sure to set up regular eye exams with your local eye doctor in order to keep up healthy eyes for years to come.
