A comprehensive eye health and vision examination is good for everyone. Here are some of the major benefits of having your eyes examined regularly:
Eye health: As we collect our birthdays, our eyes are more susceptible to developing problems like glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, floaters and other issues. With early detection, often these issues can be mitigated. Patients with chronic health issues like diabetes, or use of some long-term medications should have eye examinations annually, and sometimes more frequently. Dr. Mitchell can help determine how frequently you should be seen.
Eye development: Did you know that most of our visual function is learned behavior? Early visual development is important to ensure good visual potential throughout your life. All children should have a comprehensive eye health and vision examination by their first birthday with an eye care provider, then preschool age (3-5), then annually when they start school. Dr. Mitchell has a lot of experience with children of all ages, and can help identify and correct many vision issues that can stand in the way of healthy development and general learning.
General vision: Our vision can fluctuate and change throughout our lives, and regular eye examinations help to identify these changes and address them so you can always see your clearest. If you wear contact lenses, Dr. Mitchell recommends a check-up every 6 months. If you wear glasses, your vision could change yearly. If you are in your mid 40’s, your vision will definitely start changing, even if you’ve never had to wear contact lenses or glasses before.
