Eye Examinations in Sycamore
Your sight is so important, and sometimes it’s hard to tell if it’s gradually changing. That’s why it’s important for adults to schedule an eye exam at least every two years — every year if they are older than 60 — and more often if they have health issues that affect their vision, such as diabetes. Children need their vision checked several times before they begin elementary school.
Even if you aren’t squinting at signs while you drive or holding the newspaper up to your face, you may be surprised at what an eye exam can do for you.
Not only do eye tests reveal any bothersome nearsightedness or farsightedness, but an exam can rule out the possibility of glaucoma, macular degeneration, cataracts, retinopathy, and many other conditions. Your eye care professional will make sure the muscles that move and focus your eyes are working well and working together. He or she will use a variety of tools to painlessly examine the health of all parts of your eyes.
If your vision needs correction, your doctor can prescribe glasses, contacts, or other remedies. While you’re in for an exam, view our affordable, brand name frames and sunglasses.
