When it comes to scheduling preventive health screening exams, eye exams are often overlooked. Individuals may not understand the importance of their ocular health, and many assume a basic vision screening is comprehensive. However, that is not the case and eye diseases are common and can go undetected for a long period of time before symptoms appear. Seeing a licensed optometrist or ophthalmologist for comprehensive eye exams is important for detecting eye disease in the early stages when treatment is available to prevent vision loss is most effective.
