Eye examinations are an important part of health maintenance for everyone. Adults should have their eyes tested to keep their prescriptions current and to check for early signs of eye disease. Eye examination for children plays an important role in ensuring normal vision development and academic achievement of all kids. Annual eye exams not only detect eye diseases like cataracts and glaucoma but also can provide early detection of other diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis and high blood pressure. Early identification and correction of sight problems in children can greatly aid in performance at school. Many of us spend a large amount of time in front of computer screens and may benefit from corrective lenses specifically designed for that environment.
