The Importance of Eye Care and Check-Ups

Regular check-ups are the key to keeping your eyes healthy and vision clear. At Family EyeCare at Westchase, we have provided residents of Tampa, FL, with reliable eye care services for many years. Read on to learn more about the importance of eye care and check-ups.

Eye Exams

Getting an eye exam can help make sure that your eyes stay as healthy as possible. It can also help to make sure that your vision is as good as possible. Some things that can be found during an eye check-up are:

  • Myopia (nearsightedness)
  • Hyperopia (farsightedness)
  • Astigmatism

These are all conditions that affect your vision and can be corrected with contact lenses or glasses. Your check-up will include the tests that will help our eye doctor determine your vision prescription. If you opt for contact lenses, we will help you select the type of lenses that will benefit you the most. Other conditions that can be detected during an eye exam include:

  • Macular degeneration
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma

Family Eye Exams

It is never too early to get into good habits when it comes to eye care. If the adults in a family need corrective lenses, chances are pretty good that children may have some of the same issues. Getting early exams means your child will start school with the best possible chance for success. How often you need to visit the eye doctor, depends on how serious your eye conditions are and how often your prescription needs to be changed. In adults, frequent changes in your prescription can be a sign of eye conditions or health conditions that need to be addressed.
