Starting 2020 Off Right!

2020 eye health

It’s the start of a new year, and we want to help you start it off the right way! To that end, if you’re not getting regular eye exams for yourself or your children because you think a vision screening is the same thing, you may want to think again.

Vision screenings are not an adequate substitute for eye exams. For example, a driver’s license screening is simply a quick check to make sure your peripheral vision is good enough to see vehicles approaching from the side, and that you are able to recognize road signs and other things from a safe distance.

But a vision screening DOESN’T involve determining if you are higher-risk for certain vision problems or checking for glaucoma, cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, etc. In addition, as I mentioned above, vision screenings often are only testing for good enough—which doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t need corrective lenses. 

And while school vision screenings have a stricter standard for detecting vision problems, they lack the comprehensiveness of an eye exam that can detect visual disorders that may affect your child’s learning. 

So don’t compromise or settle for less when it comes to your vision—schedule your annual exam with us today.
