It seems like a no-brainer. Go for an eye exam. If you are a caring and concerned mom or dad or other guardian of any child, make it a point to always arrange for a yearly eye exam. Except that it isn't. Too often, people simply take their eye health for granted. If they feel like they see fine or their old glasses work great, nothing to be concerned about, right?
Well maybe, and maybe not.
Eyes are delicate structures, made up of millions of working parts to get their jobs done. And so many other factors about our lives and our health can affect how our eyes function and how healthy they actually are.
But what if my primary care doctor has said it looks good? Well, chances are if your primary care doctor has no concerns, then you shouldn't be worried, either. But that still doesn't mean you should not follow up with an eye exam from a professional.
