Eye exams not only can reveal eye diseases and conditions as well as vision problems but they also can reveal a lot about your overall health. The earliest signs of many illnesses are first shown in your eyes; many of these illnesses can affect your vision. Eye exams can detect health problems such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, also known as hypertension, diabetes, high stroke risk, thyroid problems and even early signs of multiple sclerosis. Getting comprehensive eye exams on an annual basis is extremely important for early detection of serious eye diseases and conditions as well as other overall health illnesses that can be detected through the eye exam. The earlier a disease or condition is detected, the quicker the condition can be addressed and treatment can commence. If it has been more than a year since you have had a comprehensive eye exam we highly recommend that you make an appointment with our San Antonio optometrist at The Eyeglass Shop to get your exam as soon as possible. You need to do this even if you don’t have any vision problems or symptoms. There are many eye diseases and conditions that have no signs or symptoms until they reach the advanced stages, many of which cause vision loss if left untreated.
