Regular eye exams are the key to eye health and consistent vision. Many common vision issues can be treated when found early, and your eyes are worth caring for. In order to keep your vision from fading over time, regular eye exams are key.

Take a minute to think about the last time you went to the doctor. If you can't remember or it was over a year ago, or if you are unsure that your vision is ideal, it's probably time to make your next appointment.

What to Lookout For

Eye exams are as essential to your health and well-being as your annual doctor's appointment. Here's how you know you're almost overdue for a visit.

  • Your vision has changed. If it's harder to read, see things across the room, or complete regular chores, that's a good sign that you may need a check-up.

  • You get regular headaches. This one can be tricky, but if you're having more headaches or different pain than before, you'll want to check in on your vision as part of the evaluation process.

  • You don't remember when your last eye exam was. You might be overdue!

  • Driving at night is becoming more challenging. This can be attributed to many things but is worth checking on.
