The Importance of Routine Eye Examinations

For those of us with eyes that are in good condition, it's normal to forget about the importance of taking preventative steps such as an optical examination. However, early detection of eye disease is necessary to maintaining healthy eyes. And all it requires is an annual eye test.

Numerous optical ailments don't have any obvious symptoms. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Call to schedule a complete optical exam at our Centreville, VA office, with our highly-trained optometric team. Our Centreville vision center employs the latest equipment ensuring a complete examination.

Glaucoma is the primary source of blindness, resulting in loss of sight for over three million Americans. Frequently called ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can cause substantial damage without any forewarning. More than half of adult Americans fail to use eye glasses or contacts and don't schedule comprehensive eye exams, thus putting their eyes at great danger.

The unfortunate truth is that the majority of adults are not aware that blinding diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration often have no early symptoms and without a comprehensive eye exam are often found only when it's too advanced.

Early eye disease screening should be a priority. Make sure to set up regular eye exams with your local optometrist in order to ensure healthy eyes for many long years.
