The Importance of Routine Eye Exams

The importance of yearly eye exams extends well beyond just getting your vision checked. Eye exams are a critical part of maintaining your vision and eye health. Certain eye conditions can only be prevented or properly managed if caught early on during an exam. Our optometry team at East Memphis Optometry provides patients throughout the Memphis area with the eye care they need for optimal vision.

Maintaining a Proper Prescription

Checking vision is typically the reason that most people schedule an annual eye exam. It's crucial to make sure that your vision is accurate. If you are using an improper prescription, headaches and eye strain can easily occur. Our optometrist can prescribe the corrective lenses needed to make your vision as accurate as possible.

Eyewear Options

Choosing between glasses, contacts, or using both is something we can go over during your annual exam. Our qualified optometry team at East Memphis Optometry can work with you to ensure you have the eyewear options needed for daily activities. If contact lenses are right for you, we can schedule a contact lens fitting and teaching session for proper lens care.

More Than Just a Lens Exam

The typical eye exams check for more than changes in your prescription. At your eye exam, we can screen for eye diseases and also systemic diseases.

Many eye diseases can be detected and treated early when a patient has an annual eye exam. These include macular degeneration, dry eye, glaucoma, and cataracts. It's essential to have annual eye exams to detect any problems early. There's also a possibility of finding an unknown problem like an eye scratch that could be irritating a patient and causing other issues like redness and irritation. Other systemic conditions like diabetes and high blood pressure affect your eye health and can be detected with a routine eye exam.
