According to the American Optometric Association, our brain receives 80% of information through our eyes. But looking at our eyes through the lens of a comprehensive eye exam can reveal important details about your overall health and wellness.


Eye exams can diagnose diseases

Your comprehensive exam can detect and help diagnose over 25 chronic diseases and health conditions, including:

  • Diabetes

  • High blood pressure

  • Cancer

  • High cholesterol

  • Cataracts

  • Glaucoma

  • Macular degeneration

  • Retinal detachment

  • Autoimmune disorders


The great news is early detection can lead to better care, which can lessen long-term effects and also preserve your vision.

Try these vision care tips at home

Along with your annual comprehensive eye exam, follow these simple tips to keep your eyes healthy.

Take care of glare

If you spend a lot of time driving or around water, you can reduce your exposure to reflective glare from shiny surfaces (cars, water, pavement) with polarized lenses


Step away from the [sun] light

Like your skin, your eyes need sun protection. Peak sun times (when UV rays are strongest) are typically between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Wearing sunglasses during these times (or just staying out of the sun altogether) is crucial.


Own your health

Sticking to a healthy, balanced diet, getting exercise, and working closely with your eye care provider will contribute towards good eye health and help prevent diseases.
