Preventive Eye Care

Let’s face it; most people don’t look forward to going to their eye doctor for eye exams. There are those eye drops, the “better one, or better two?” questions, and sitting around while your vision gets fuzzy. Besides, if you see well and your eyes don’t hurt, what’s the problem?

Actually, while some eye diseases let you know something is wrong – with symptoms such as red eyes, light sensitivity, or flashing lights – many serious, vision-threatening problems have no warning signs. Much like high blood pressure, most forms of glaucoma, for example, produce no symptoms whatsoever until some vision has been permanently lost. This is why glaucoma is often referred to as “the thief in the night.” Proper eye care and checkups can help prevent your eyesight being taken from you.

Annual Eye Exam at Washington Eye Care Center - Washington Eye Specialists in DC and Chevy ChaseAnnual eye exams can also detect diabetes, hypertension, retinal holes or tears, and other important treatable medical conditions. Today’s sophisticated medical equipment, in the hands of your expert vision care specialist, can detect the earliest signs of a problem. This is why the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends yearly eye examinations for adults over 50, and every two years for younger people. Early detection and treatment of these symptom-less conditions can protect and preserve your precious vision for a lifetime. Learn more about preventive eye care by scheduling an appointment at our eye care center in Chevy Chase, Maryland.
