Why You Need an Annual Eye Exam
People often neglect getting an annual eye exam because they don't think anything is seriously wrong with their eyes or vision. Unfortunately, many eye diseases that lead to vision loss develop slowly and asymptomatically. Vision issues can occur so gradually that you are not aware of the problem. Many of us put off an annual eye exam until vision difficulties interfere with daily activities, such as driving or work-related tasks. By then, the disorder causing vision problems has progressively worsened and may have caused permanent damage.
Scheduling once a year eye examinations with Dr. James Aversa, our optometrist in Hasbrouck Heights, is an essential part of any preventative health care program. In addition to testing your vision, our staff also employ in-depth procedures designed to detect diseases of the eye that affect blood circulation, blood pressure and eye musculature controlling directional eye movement.
Eye diseases and disorders often going undetected when proper eyecare is neglected include:
- Refractive errors (astigmatism, farsightedness, nearsightedness)
- Strabismus (a disorder of the eyes' alignment)
- Presbyopia (an inability to focus correctly that especially affects older adults)
- Glaucoma (associated with abnormally high, intraocular pressure)
- Macular degeneration (retinal damage that causes vision loss)
- Ocular melanoma (development of cancer within pigment cells)
