Importance of Eye Checks

Eye examinations check for the visual function for proximal vision as well as distance vision. The basic visual acuity screening identifies if and when one will need to start using glasses for the first time.

It also indicates the corrections needed periodically based on improvement or deterioration of visual function over the years.

In addition to near-sightedness and far-sightedness, optometrists also look for any other ocular symptoms.

Issues such as astigmatism, even though very common, are oftentimes very disturbing in daily life. Requirement of cylindrical power is also identified during such checks by the optometrists.

More than 75% cases of blindness are preventable if identified in time. While eye examinations have so much to offer, they are not of much use if not done regularly.

Many of the ocular symptoms and conditions, once developed fully, are irreversible or very difficult to cure at a later stage. Therefore, thorough examination of lens, retina, and optic nerve are pivotal parts of a regular full eye check-up.

Cataract is a condition causing the lens of the eye to become opaque, resulting in blurred vision. Timely identification of cataract, and the lens replacement surgery are essential to restore normal vision.

Retinal detachment, a medical emergency, can lead to complete blindness, if not treated appropriately in a timely manner. Early spotting of any such development during regular eye examinations can prove to be a boon.
