Your eyes are your windows to the world. Learn how to keep them healthy and safe.
Getting a comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way to catch eye diseases early, because with many, there are no warning signs.
You might think your vision is in good shape or that your eyes are healthy, but visiting your eye care professional for a comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way to be completely certain. When it comes to common vision problems, many people don’t realize their vision could be improved with glasses or contact lenses. In addition, many common eye diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic eye disease often have no early symptoms. A comprehensive dilated eye exam is the only way to detect these diseases in their early stages. Talk to your eye care professional about how often you should have one. See a retina specialist if you have diabetis or a retina tear.
