Why We All Need to Schedule a Routine Eye Exam


When we have healthy eyes, it's common to forget about the importance of taking preventative steps namely, an eye exam. Nevertheless, early diagnosis of any eye or vision problems is critical to maintaining healthy eyes. This can easily be done with a yearly eye exam.


Numerous optical problems don't have any obvious symptoms. Therefore, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can book a comprehensive eye exam at our office in Manhattan, with our experienced optometry staff. Our Manhattan practice uses cutting-edge equipment to provide you with a complete eye exam.


Unfortunately, more than three million Americans suffer from glaucoma, the leading source of blindness but only 50% of them know it. Frequently nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can impair vision without any forewarning. Nearly two-thirds of adult Americans fail to use corrective lenses and don't receive comprehensive eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at greater risk.


The danger is that the majority of people are not informed that blinding conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration often have no early symptoms and without a routine eye exam are often discovered only after it's too late.


Early eye disease detection should be a priority. Make sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local optometrist in order to keep up your vision and eye health for many long years.
