People of all ages should see an optometrist regularly – preferably annually.
Seeing an optometrist annually is an important part of taking care of yourself and is every bit as important as regular dental visits and an annual physical at your family doctor. At Vision Center of Lake Norman, we recommend you see our optometrist, Dr. Chuck Monson, once a year for a complete eye health evaluation, which will include discussing your vision history; evaluating your visual acuity; conducting tests to determine depth perception, eye muscle movements, peripheral vision, and more; and performing other assessments as needed.
People of all ages should see an optometrist regularly – from infancy to the retirement years. In the early years, we are looking for any eye health issues that could result in developmental delays so that your child has the best chance of success in their studies and recreational pursuits in the Huntersville, North Carolina area. It is our goal to prevent any serious eye health concerns and be able to let you know when treatment is needed for such conditions as glaucoma, diabetes, macular degeneration, or cataracts.
What to Do With an Eye Emergency
If you have an eye injury, you may wonder what to do and who to call. Is the injury very severe? Is there any damage? Is your vision okay? Unfortunately, the severity of an eye injury can be difficult to determine upon first look, and it’s important to contact your eye doctor right away, no matter how small or large the problem may seem. Eye injuries should be taken seriously! Ask your eye doctor about the action steps you should take.
Our team always creates a welcoming environment when you come to visit your optometrist so that you can have a pleasant and rewarding experience. You’ll leave with peace of mind that you are equipped to do the best thing for your eye health, so you can enjoy good vision for a lifetime.
