- An eye examination is only necessary if you have problems
Not true. You might experience accurate vision but you have no idea of what is going on in your eyes. Preventive maintenance will keep your eyesight working much longer. An eye exam every year will show possible causes for eyesight deterioration and you will be able to take preventive action sooner. Typically, a good visual exam will also include a binocular vision evaluation, an essential part of a good visual performance. Sight threatening conditions such as Glaucoma may not cause any symptoms in the early stages, regular check ups are important to catch any changes early to delay or even prevent vision loss.
