Have You Had an Eye Exam Lately?

For those of us who have eyes that are in good condition, we might overlook the importance of a routine eye test. Nevertheless, early detection of eye disease is necessary to keeping your eyes healthy. And all it takes is a yearly eye exam.

Numerous eye and vision ailments have no apparent signs. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can book a complete eye exam at our Mississauga office, where our highly-trained optometry team provides service suited to the needs of every patient. Our Mississauga practice uses the latest technology ensuring a complete examination.

Unfortunately, over than three million Americans have glaucoma, the main cause of vision loss but only half of them are aware. Glaucoma is often nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can cause significant harm without any symptoms. Nearly two-thirds of adult Americans fail to use visual aids and don't get regular eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at great danger.

Studies show that many Americans lack knowledge about the actual severity of glaucoma. In a recent survey, the American Optometric Association determined that well over half of Americans think glaucoma is avoidable. In truth the disease cannot be prevented, while it is treatable if diagnosed in the early stages, which makes early detection even more important. Early diagnosis and treatment are also crucial for preventing the devastating outcomes of eye diseases such as macular degeneration or cataracts.

Early eye disease detection should be on your check list. Be sure to set up regular eye exams with your local optometrist to maintain your vision and eye health for years to come.
