Can you say with 100% assurance that your vision right now is as good as it can possibly be? Unless you have had an eye exam within the last few months, then probably not. One of the two major reasons why we at Wyckoff Ophthalmology recommend our comprehensive eye exams once per year is that your visual needs evolve, and what was perfect for you last year might be only adequate now. The other reason is that your eye health is best supported by regular checkups for the presence of eye disease.
Don't be misled into thinking that just because you are symptom free and feeling fine that there is no concern about the wellness of your eyes. The unfortunate reality is that the most common eye diseases, which include glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and cataracts, all advance through their early stages without any obvious signs. It's alarming to realize that, but the good news is that making an annual visit for our eye exam in Midland Park is the best way to have eye disease detected promptly so that timely treatment and management can be seen to. Optimal vision can be had in spite of nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and presbyopia, which is an excellent reason to have our eye exam in Midland Park, during which our ophthalmologist will do a full vision screening. If you have existing glasses or contact lenses, bring them with you. It's possible that you might need an update to your prescription. If you're a first time corrective eyewear user, you will be pleasantly surprised to find out just how much of a positive difference it can make.
It's never too soon for you to reach out to our office to schedule your next trip in for our eye exam in Midland Park. Either call us or click on the handy “request an appointment” tab found on our website.
