Have You Had a Routine Eye Exam Lately?


When we have eyes that are in good condition, we might miss the importance of a routine eye exam. Nevertheless, early detection of eye disease is necessary to maintaining healthy eyes. And all it requires is a yearly eye exam.


Many eye and vision ailments are a-symptomatic. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can schedule a complete optical exam at our office in North Reading, where our highly-trained optometric staff provides service suited to the needs of every patient. Our North Reading practice employs cutting-edge technology ensuring a thorough examination.


Glaucoma affects over three million Americans as the number one source of blindness. Glaucoma is often nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can cause significant damage without any forewarning. The majority of adult Americans fail to use visual aids and don't receive comprehensive eye exams, thus leaving their eyes at risk.


To make matters worse, many Americans lack knowledge about the seriousness of glaucoma. In a recent poll, the American Optometric Association determined that two-thirds of Americans think glaucoma can be prevented. In reality the disease cannot be prevented, while it can be treated if caught close to the onset of the disease, making regular screening even more crucial. Early detection is also crucial for preventing the harmful effects of eye diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts.


Regular eye and vision examinations to check for eye and vision problems should be on your to-do list. Make sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local eye doctor to ensure your vision and eye health for years to come.
