When we have healthy eyes, we might miss the importance of taking preventative action namely, an eye examination. However, early detection of any eye or vision problems is critical to keeping your eyes healthy. And all it takes is an annual eye test.

Many optical diseases are a-symptomatic. As a result, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Book a comprehensive optical examination at our office in Plymouth, with our experienced optometric team. Our Plymouth practice uses the latest technology to provide you with a complete eye exam.

Glaucoma strikes over three million Americans as the main cause of vision loss. Glaucoma is sometimes called ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can impair vision without any forewarning. Almost two-thirds of adult Americans fail to use eye glasses or contacts and don't schedule regular eye exams, thus leaving their eyes at substantial danger.

Research shows that many Americans are uneducated about the actual severity of glaucoma. In a recent survey, the American Optometric Association reported that two-thirds of Americans are under the false impression that glaucoma can be prevented. In reality the sight-stealing disease is unpreventable, though it is treatable if recognized close to the onset of the disease, which makes early detection even more important. Early detection is also critical for preventing the devastating results of conditions including macular degeneration and cataracts.

Regular eye and vision exams to check for eye disease should be a priority. Be sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local optometrist in order to keep up your vision and eye health for many long years.
