Many people often overlook their eye health. It is a common belief that visiting your eye doctor is only necessary if you are living with some form of vision impairment and need an updated prescription or if you notice any strange symptoms or discomfort in your eyes. Even though both of the aforementioned reasons are still great reasons to visit your eye doctor, it is not the only reason to have an eye exam. It is recommended that everyone have their eyes thoroughly examined about once a year to check for any changes in visual acuity or any signs of eye disease. Here at Eyewear Studio, our eye doctor can provide you with the comprehensive eye exams you need here in Niagara Falls.
You may have remembered to schedule your annual physical to make sure that you’re in healthy, working order. But did you remember to schedule your annual eye exam? A physical exam with your general practitioner may briefly test your visual acuity by having you read from a chart at a distance. This test can alert you to whether you need any vision correction or if your prescription needs to be changed, but this test cannot tell you much else beyond that. A comprehensive eye exam here with us at Eyewear Studio can give you all of that and more. Not only will our eye doctor, Dr. Paul Fani, test your visual acuity but he will also be able to tell you what your new prescription is should you need it. Additionally, Dr. Fani will screen your eyes for cancer as well as a variety of conditions or diseases. A comprehensive eye exam can even inform you of whether you have any other medical conditions such as diabetes or high cholesterol.
Regular eye exams can help your eye doctor monitor your eye health, better allowing them to determine the presence of any small changes. Patients who have a family history of eye disease such as glaucoma or macular degeneration should make their annual eye appointment a priority, but eye conditions can occur to anyone. Take the first step towards comprehensive eye health by calling us for an appointment at Eyewear Studio in Niagara Falls today.
