Happy Year of the Eye: 2020!

Keep your eyes happy and healthy with regular eyecare. Here are some signs it might be time for an eye examination:

-You have noticed changes in your vision

-You are experiencing eyestrain or headaches, especially when reading or using the computer for a prolonged period of time

-You must hold reading material further away from your eyes in order to focus properly

-You are over the age of 40 and cannot remember the last time you had your eyes checked

-You have diabetes (your eyes should be examined and dilated yearly)

-You have a health condition (such as high blood pressure) or are taking a medication that can affect your eyes (such as Plaquenil or Tamoxifen)

-You have a family history of an eye disease, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration

-You are seeing floaters (small spots in your vision) or flashes of light

-You are experiencing trouble seeing in the dark or driving at night

-Your eyes are dry, red, or itchy

A comprehensive eye examination by an ophthalmologist can help detect early signs of eye disease as well as systemic conditions. Keep your eyes 20/20 this year!
