Top Three Reasons You Need Routine Eye Exams

1. Quality Eye Health

Many common eye diseases, including cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, and glaucoma do not present symptoms until a late stage of the disease, when vision damage may already have occurred. When Dr. Flowers performs your eye exam,  he will be able to uncover the early signs of disease. Then you can receive beneficial treatment as soon as possible to prevent vision loss.


2. Sharp Vision

As people age vision changes. Aging can lead to a range of vision conditions such as farsightedness and nearsightedness. Only thorough eye exams will accurately verify your prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses. During a pediatric examination, Dr. Flowers evaluates your child’s entire visual system. He pays special attention to spot warning signs of lazy eye and focusing problems that can interfere with learning and growth. 


3. Check up of Overall Health

Your eyes give Dr. Flowers a view of your general body health. Specific diseases, such as high cholesterol, diabetes, and high blood pressure can be observed affecting inner eye tissues before you notice any problems. When these health conditions are left untreated, they can cause damage to your eyes and the rest of your body. If Dr. Flowers detects these signs, he will discuss his findings with you and refer you to the most appropriate medical care specialist.
