Did you know that 75% of all vision loss is avoidable? Refractive error is the largest cause of vision loss in Canadians, yet it is completely treatable. Regular eye exams, whether you need a prescription or not, are essential in detecting and reducing vision loss. In the meantime, wearing sunglasses and quitting smoking are significant steps you can take to prolong your good vision for years to come.
What You Should Know
It is important to have annual vision tests in order to protect your eyesight. The back of your eye, the retina, needs to be examined to ensure that it is healthy, undamaged and free of the signs of disease. Since many eye diseases don’t exhibit symptoms in the early stages of their development, routine screening is the best way to detect changes in the eye and prevent severe blood vessel damage. With close cooperation between patient and physician, it is now possible to eliminate treatable blindness caused by eye disease.
You don’t have to endure long wait times to receive your regular retinal screening, since screening can be performed at local sites without the need for dilation. These screenings also create a permanent record of your eye health for future comparison, so any changes in your eye can be detected early enough to protect your vision.
