Annual Eye Exams
We’re proud to provide annual eye exams for patients of any age in Mooresville, NC.
Annual eye exams are part of taking care of your long-term health. Vision changes over time, from early childhood to adulthood and beyond, so having your annual eye exams on time can help in a number of ways. First, identifying changes in your eyesight can help to refine your prescription in order to give you better vision year round. Annual eye exams can also help identify potential long-term health issues like glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, cataracts, and other vision-related issues.
In addition, options can be discussed as to what type of vision correction might work best for you in your current circumstances. Glasses and contacts are both common and very popular methods for vision correction, but your annual eye exams are a prime moment to consider and discuss with your optometrist if LASIK is an option that could work for you. Overall, even if you don’t currently use any kind of corrective eye wear or contact lenses, your annual eye exams will help you to keep better account of your vision and health.

What are the benefits of an eye exam?
Your eye doctor at Vision Center of Lake Norman or Lifetime Eyecare in Newton will provide you with immediate feedback about the health of your eyes.
They will test for farsightedness, nearsightedness, focusing problems, other vision issues, and eye diseases.
Based on their findings, they will provide you with a prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses if needed, and helpful information you should know about your eye health and vision.
Healthy eyes and vision require care and maintenance. Perhaps the greatest benefit of getting regular eye exams is the prevention of degenerative eye diseases. If you neglect getting your eyes examined by a qualified optometrist, this can result in the development of eye health issues that can progress over time and lead to significant long-term effects. Seeing an eye doctor on a regular basis can protect your vision through early diagnosis and treatment.
How often should I get an eye exam?
While it can depend on your individual eye health and vision needs, we usually recommend seeing us at least once each year for an eye exam, even if you feel your vision is fine.
People with risk factors such as having diabetes, family history of eye disease, or previous eye trauma, may need their eyes examined more frequently.
If you wear contact lenses, an annual eye exam is required to check the health of your eyes and to receive an updated prescription.
