When was the last time you had an eye exam?
Annual eye exam is critical in maintain your eye health.
An eye doctor is a specialist (optometrist or ophthalmologist) who’s trained to exam, treat and care for your eyes.
Here are five signs that you need to see your eye doctor as soon as possible (ASAP):
1. Blurring and focusing problems
Blurry vision or difficulty in focusing on objects can be a symptom of various health issues such as Astigmatism, Cataracts, Glaucoma, Hyperopia (Farsightedness), myopia (nearsightedness) and Macular degeneration. These are some of the conditions that our doctors treat everyday.
2. Visual disturbances
Visual disturbances may take the form of obstructed vision, floaters or flashes of light.
Reoccurring headaches can be a sure sign that you are straining your eyes trying to focus. A visit to your eye specialist could reveal the cause of your headaches.
4. Eye pain, fatigue or strain
Everybody suffers from painful, fatigued or strained eyes from time to time. This is especially true after a late night, during allergy season or flu season. For any eye pain, please see your eye doctor as soon as possible.
5. Eye Infections
Symptoms of an eye infection could be any discharge from the eye, swelling of the eyelids, itchiness, redness or a pink tinge to the whites of your eyes.
The most common causes of vision loss often show no sign at the early stages, that is why we recommend everyone to get an eye exam every year.
