An important part of preventative health care is making biannual eye exams part of your routine. Even though your vision may be clear, exams can uncover changes in the eye caused by high blood pressure, diabetes, eye tumors, retinal disorders and glaucoma. Some of these have no symptoms in the early stages. Eye exams can also lead to the earliest detection of other serious health problems-including diabetes or hypertension.
Children should have their first eye exam before entering kindergarten.

A clouding of the lens in the eye that is usually related to aging.
A disease that blurs the sharp, central vision you need for "straight ahead" activities such as reading, sewing, and driving. AMD is leading cause of vision loss in people 50 years of age and older.
A group of diseases that can damage the eye's optic nerve and result in vision loss and blindness. With early detection and treatment, individuals can often protect their eyes against serious vision loss.
A complication of diabetes and a leading cause of blindness. It occurs when diabetes damages the tiny blood vessels inside the retina, the light sensitive tissue at the back of the eye.
While most visual changes can be corrected by glasses, medicine or surgery, visual changes caused by eye disease, poor health or injury can cause permanent vision loss. If the loss is total, the result is blindness. If it is partial, the result is a vision impairment known as "low vision." A person with low vision has severly reduced visual acuity or a significantly obstructed field of vision - or both.
