The Importance of Early Eye Disease Detection

When we have eyes that are in good condition, we sometimes forget about the importance of a routine eye examination. However, timely detection of any eye or vision problems is critical to maintaining healthy vision and eyes. And all it requires is an annual eye exam.

Many eye and vision ailments have no obvious symptoms. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Schedule a comprehensive optical exam at our Tupelo, MS office, where our highly-trained optometry team provides service suited to the needs of each patient. Our Tupelo practice uses the latest equipment to provide you with a thorough eye exam.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of vision loss, resulting in loss of sight for over three million Americans. Glaucoma is often referred to as ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can cause substantial damage absent of forewarning. Most adults in America don't use eye glasses or contacts and don't receive regular eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at greater risk.

The unfortunate truth is that the majority of adults are not aware that sight-stealing conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration often have no early symptoms and without a routine exam are frequently found only after it's too advanced.

Early eye disease detection should be on your to-do list. Be sure to set up regular eye exams with your local eye doctor in order to ensure healthy eyes for many long years.
