The Importance of Eye Exams

Eye exams are a vital part of staying healthy. Your eye health and vision need to be regularly monitored to ensure that you do not develop any problems. At ABC Vision Source, serving Sherwood, Portland, and Hillsboro, OR, we provide routine eye exams and other optometry services. Here are just some of the reasons why eye exams are so important.

Detect Early Symptoms of Eye Diseases

Annual eye exams can save your vision. Diseases like glaucoma exhibit little or no symptoms until the condition is at an advanced stage. However, our eye doctor can detect these conditions early and intervene before they worsen and cause vision loss.

Detect Other Medical Conditions

When you come for an eye exam, our eye doctor doesn't only check your vision. We also look for symptoms of other diseases that can be exhibited through your eyes. For instance, if you have diabetes, cancer, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, it can be detected during your annual exam.

During an in-depth eye exam, our optometrist checks the health of the blood vessels running through your retina. If you have medical conditions like diabetes, changes in the retinal blood vessels can indicate that something is amiss.

Ensure Your Children Succeed in School

We offer children’s eyecare in addition to adult eyecare services. Kids need routine eye exams to ensure that their vision is good and they can learn properly in school. With kids expected to learn in and out of the classroom, good vision is crucial for reading, writing, and more. Optimal eye health for your kid is also beneficial during sports and other outdoor activities.

It's also important to note that vision screenings aren't substitutes for eye exams. Visual screenings are quick eye checkups performed by nurses or volunteers to evaluate visual acuity and significant vision problems. On the other hand, eye exams are carried out by eye doctors and include vision screenings and other tests to establish eye health.
