From 6 months to 106 years, seeing an eye doctor annually is critical for optimal eye health.
It is quite easy to remind yourself about the value of eyesight – just try putting on a blindfold for a few minutes, and you can understand how precious your eyes are. That is why it is critical to see an eye doctor each year, even if you aren’t having a vision concern or other eye health issue. The eye doctor here at Vision Center of Lake Norman, Dr. Chuck Monson, genuinely cares about your eye health and catching any problems as early as possible.
There are several symptoms to watch out for that would necessitate a visit to an eye doctor. If you experience pain or discomfort, red eyes, change in vision, sensitivity to light, excess tear production, or anything else out of the norm, we recommend contacting us to schedule an appointment with our eye doctor. It is important to get started with treatment if you have eye issues such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration or other vision health concerns.
Are Your Glasses Frames Making You Uncomfortable?
If you wear glasses to correct your vision, then you know how important it is for them to sit comfortably on your face. So, when you notice that your ears hurt, your glasses sit off-kilter on your nose, or they rub your face in odd places, you may be wondering if your glasses are helping or hurting. If you notice that your glasses are not comfortable to wear or if you are constantly adjusting them for comfort, it is time to schedule an appointment with your optometrist! Contact our office today to make your next appointment.
