The Importance of Eye Care and Check-Ups

One of the most important things you can do for your eye health is to maintain routine eye exams with an eye doctor. Exams can catch early complications before serious symptoms set in. Our optometrists provide eye exams and comprehensive eye care at Spadafora & Zak Eye Care in Clarkston, MI. Here are a few reasons why you should have a routine check-up.

Eye Diseases Often Have No Early Symptoms 

There are an array of eye diseases, such as macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma, that have no warning signs in the early stages of development. Seeing an eye doctor on an annual basis can help detect these eye conditions that can lead to vision loss or even blindness. A proper diagnosis and treatment plan can help maintain your vision and prevent future complications.

Get a Picture of Your Overall Health 

An eye exam can let our doctor know if you are experiencing any health-related issues like high blood pressure or diabetes. A regular appointment with our optometrists protects your vision and overall well-being.

Stay Up to Date on Your Prescription

Over time, your eyes change, and so does the need to update your glasses or contact lenses. However, incorrect prescriptions can cause harm to your eyes and give you headaches. We also can refer you to an ophthalmologist for LASIK surgery if you want to forgo wearing contact lenses or eyeglasses.

Get Help with Common Eye Concerns

Our eye doctor can help with common eye conditions such as dry eye, pink eye, and more. We will evaluate your current eye health and provide an effective treatment plan.
