Why Regular Eye Exams Matter, Even with Perfect Vision
Some people think eye exams are only for those with glasses. But here's the scoop — eye exams do more than check your vision. Misunderstandings about eye checkups can mean you'll miss the chance to catch eye problems and more significant health issues early. This November, during Diabetes Awareness Month, it's extra important to know how your eyes and your health are connected.
The Need for Regular Eye Checkups
Spotting Eye Problems Early
Comprehensive eye examinations offer a dual benefit — in addition to assessing and addressing the need for glasses or lenses, they play a vital role in safeguarding the overall health of your eyes. Some eye problems, like glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration, can sneak in without you noticing any signs. Our regular eye checkups at Vision First in Highland Village can find these problems early so we can take care of them in time.
Eyes Give Clues About Your Health
Many serious health problems, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and even certain kinds of cancer, can be spotted in your eyes during eye exams. Our doctors can identify these issues during regular checkups at our Highland Village practice.

Our advanced retinal imaging is like a high-resolution picture of your eye's insides. It helps us see small changes and problems. For example, it can catch diabetic retinopathy early, which is a big deal because it can help save your sight.
Focusing on Diabetes Awareness
November is Diabetes Awareness Month, a time to remember that diabetes increases the risk of diabetic retinopathy, which can affect vision. Routine eye exams with retinal imaging can catch this early, so eye care is necessary for people with diabetes.
At Vision First, Highland Village, we believe in regular eye exams for your vision and overall health. And with Diabetes Awareness Month in November, you have the perfect opportunity to book an appointment with us and look after your eyes and overall health.
