Why is it so important to get your eyes examined? What happens during an eye exam? When should someone see their doctor? Most people think the purpose of an eye exam is to update prescriptions and get new, trendy glasses, but the full purpose is much more extensive. Throughout an exam, patients will be tested for early onset and even undiagnosed diseases as well as be treated for vision loss. Experts in the field concur that it is important to see your optometrist every two to three years, depending on your age, to maintain your eye health and prevent vision loss at a later age. Through a review of current literature, the paper will analyze why patients should see their optometrist regularly and clarify the benefits that come with maintaining good eye health habits.
