MOMS AND DADS NEED EYE EXAMS TOO! If you take your kids to see the Optometrist, well done! But what about you? You are missing out on taking care of yourself. Even if you think you have perfect vision, you should see your Optometrist annually for a complete eye examination because an eye exam is MORE than just a vision screening.
Your Optometrist examines, diagnoses, treats, manages and helps prevent diseases and disorders related to the eye and everything around it. They are trained to the same standards as medical and dental professionals and can prescribe medications to treat eye conditions such as infections, inflammations, allergies and injuries.
Did you know that an eye exam can (and has in our experience many times!) help diagnose conditions like high blood pressure, cancer and other diseases in the body? Make an eye exam one of your health “check points” just like going to the dentist to have your teeth cleaned. Why take the chance of not getting to experience those precious life memories? Protect your eyes! Moms and Dads need eye exams too!
