A lot of people don’t know the difference between an eye exam and screening, they assume just because they’ve passed a screening, then they’re fine. Screenings are often done at company wellness events and also at the vehicle licensing department. Screening is often focused only on vision, whereas an eye exam focuses on the health of the visual system as a whole, including vision. A lot of sight and life threatening conditions do not affect vision until the late stages, so don’t depend of vision screenings to give you the all clear when it comes to the health of your eyes, rather do an eye exam, once a year.
