Do you really need to have an eye exam every year? You may think it’s okay to skip it if you’re seeing fine and there is nothing wrong with your eyes. But there are two flaws in that plan. First, seeing fine is not the same as seeing your best. And when it comes to the most common eye diseases, you cannot depend on symptoms being noticeable until they have progressed to a more advanced stage. And waiting for that will put you at unnecessary risk. So for those reasons, you should have our Cortlandt vision test annually at Croton Vision Center.
If you have existing glasses or contact lenses, you may be satisfied with them, but your vision needs do evolve. What was ideal for you a year ago might not be now. If an update to your existing prescription can provide you with sharper and clearer vision, then it’s well worth the minimal effort to do so. And if you have never worn corrective lenses before, this might be the right time to begin benefiting from what they offer. You can easily become accustomed to sub par vision, squinting, etc. But there’s no reason you can’t change that. This is what our Cortlandt Vision test is for. Glaucoma and cataracts are two eye diseases that can affect anyone, regardless of age, heredity, gender, ethnicity, or medical history. You will be screened for them, along with others if they are applicable to you. For example, diabetic retinopathy is a concern if you have either type one or type two diabetes. And macular degeneration should be tested for from age 40.
Our Cortlandt vision test is simple and vital to your best vision and your optimal eye well-being. Set up yours by calling us and scheduling a convenient time to come in.
