Annual Eye Exams
Mooresville, NC

We’re proud to provide annual eye exams for patients of any age in Mooresville, NC, and Newton, 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 many ways. First, identifying changes in your eyesight helps keep your prescription up to date 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.

Also, we can discuss what type of vision correction might work best for you in your current situation. Glasses and contacts are popular methods for vision correction, but your annual eye exams are the perfect time to talk with your optometrist about whether LASIK is an option for you. Overall, even if you don’t currently wear eyeglasses or contact lenses, your annual eye exams will help you to keep a better account of your vision and health.

What are the benefits of an eye exam?

Our eye doctor in Newton or Mooresville will provide you with immediate feedback about your eye health.

We’ll test for farsightedness, nearsightedness, focusing problems, other vision issues, and eye diseases.

Based on the results, we’ll 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 to see an eye doctor, this raises your risk of developing eye health issues that can progress over time and lead to significant long-term effects. Seeing an eye doctor regularly can protect your vision through early diagnosis and treatment.

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, a family history of eye disease, or previous eye trauma may need to see an eye doctor more often.
