The Importance Of Good Eye Care

The Importance Of Good Eye Care

Dec 18, 2018

At Premier Eye Care we often get asked why routine eye care is so important. While the answer isn’t simple, it is important for patients to understand why routine eye care is a must. When it comes to eye and vision-related problems, many patients don’t recognize symptoms, allowing the issue to progress until it is finally diagnosed.

Vision is a major part of learning for children.

Did you know about 85% of your child’s learning is visual? When children have vision problems it can have a major impact on their ability to learn and perform well in school. Many children also don’t notice the subtle changes in vision, often straining for months or even years before someone notices. Schedule your child’s examination with our optometrist in T3M 2J6 today.

Myopia is becoming a very common problem.

As children utilize more and more electronic devices at an early age, myopia (nearsightedness) is becoming a very common problem. These children are also susceptible to worse myopia as they age, along with other eye-related conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts and even retinal detachment.

Vision screenings are not an eye exam substitute.

Although most children receive vision examinations at school, they are actually not an adequate solution for an eye examination. During a professional eye examination, your child’s optometrist near you will evaluate their eye for any signs of eye conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma, etc. In the event any risk factors are noticed, treatment can be started to try and prevent the advancement of any conditions.

Many eye conditions have no early symptoms.

Unfortunately for many patients who suffer from eye-related conditions, the symptoms aren’t very noticeable until the condition has advanced. Scheduling routine eye examinations with your optometrist in Calgary can result in the early diagnosis and treatment of conditions, potentially preventing it from advancing.
