Can you recall the last time you took your son or daughter to visit the eye doctor? Believe it or not, your family may be in greater need for professional optical care than you realize, parents included. Patients of all ages and levels of visual clarity need to be receiving eye exams on an annual basis. Even if you have never been diagnosed with a vision problem, you still need to be maintaining regular visits to your local eye doctor. Fortunately, you can always find the care you need for patients of all ages with eye exams from your local Huntington VA eye doctor at Brahm & Powell Opticians.
A child’s eyes are precious to their ability to keep up in the classroom. Recent studies have shown that at vision makes up for over 80% of a child’s learning processes. This means that without clear vision, your son or daughter could be held back in the classroom. For these reasons, boys and girls should receive their first eye exam by no later than three years of age. This early care with annual visits ever year after works to insure that any destructive and harmful problems such as amblyopia, also known as lazy eye, are diagnosed in the earliest stages possible before they can cause harm to a child’s sight. Regular optical care from your local Huntington VA eye doctor insures your child has everything they need to succeed.
For parents, eyes need to be cared for throughout their lives as well. Your vision could be far worse than you realize. While most vision problems are diagnosed in youth, optical conditions can also occur at any point in life and avoid diagnosis without annual optical exams. This is due to the simple fact that many conditions occur naturally, causing a very gradual progression of symptoms which occurs so slowly that patients often never notice a change in their vision. Additional vision problems can also occur due to aging, beginning as early as 40 years of age. The only way to keep your vision clear and your eyes healthy throughout the long years of your life is with annual visits to your local Huntington VA eye doctor. Every comprehensive eye exam includes diagnostic testing for destructive optical diseases to provide an early diagnosis which could save your vision from harm.
