Eye Exams Are A Very Important
Part Of Your Healthcare.
Most people think an eye exam is just to determine a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. While that is a part of the process to be able to see better, a comprehensive eye exam can help detect certain health issues like Glaucoma, Cataracts, Macular Degeneration, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, Dry Eye Syndrome, tumors, and more.
We recommend that you have an eye exam yearly, as doing so may help catch issues that can affect your vision or lifestyle.
A common misconception is thinking a stronger prescription will help you to see better, but this is not always true.
Dry eyes are one of the most common reasons for poor vision. Certain medications can also distort your vision, as can some of the medical conditions listed.
Milligan Optical has now partnered with Coastal Eye and Vision Care to provide comprehensive Eye Exams and contact lens fittings with retinal imaging.
