How Not To Miss A Moment
Between Valentine’s Day and kids making snowmen, you need your vision to see every moment.
Remember: your eyes are your best ally in appreciating all special moments in life. Moments that involve your kids, your friends, your special someone … it doesn’t have to be a special occasion for those to occur. Having a good eye doctor in your life can help ensure you savor each of these. Here are some reasons it’s wise to get an annual eye exam.
1. See every moment of your child’s life clearly—they deserve it!
You spend hours practicing, studying, and rehearsing with your child. And for many this time of year, they’re building snow forts, snow angels and learning to ice skate. How can you enjoy these moments if you can’t see them clearly? If your vision is worse than 20/20, you might miss important details and not be fully present in what’s going on around you.
2. Avoid problems caused by outdated prescriptions
Wearing glasses with an old prescription can cause unnecessary discomfort. You may experience blurry vision, headaches, dizziness, or lack of balance. That wouldn’t add up to a very romantic Valentine’s Day for most people! Your date is going to the trouble of looking their best for you—make sure you can appreciate every aspect of that by knowing your vision is where it should be.
3. Make sure you’re seeing the world in 20/20
Too often people think their eyesight is fine because they’ve gotten used to it. But this can be a dangerous assumption. If you’re not seeing the world in 20/20, you could cause harm to yourself and others while driving or doing other activities that require clear focus. And you might be amazed what it’s like to view life through your correct prescription, with everything suddenly coming into clear view. It can change your life.
4. Uncover serious health issues
The flu isn’t the only malady you’ll want to stave off this time of year. An eye exam can sometimes detect signs of more serious health problems early, and even save your life. The eyes provide a clear view of your blood vessels, arteries, and cranial nerve, which can sometimes show signs of many health-related issues like high blood pressure, diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, gallstones, cancer, risk of stroke, brain tumors, glaucoma, and macular degeneration.
5. Make the most of your benefits
A yearly eye exam is covered by most vision insurance plans*. So be sure to take advantage of all your health benefits. After all, you’re already paying for them! Spring break is right around the corner. Don’t you want to be able to see all that beautiful sunshine you’ll be soaking up?
A quick visit to the eye doctor can not only save you time and money, it helps you keep up with your eye health. Stay on top of your vision care by scheduling your comprehensive eye exam today.
