It feels so good to gaze at a colorful landscape or a person we care about. Clear vision and good eye health is important to daily quality of life. Even if getting eye exams isn’t top of mind for you like a routine doctor visit, your vision is still an important part of your overall health.
We’ll show you the top reasons why it might be time for your next eye exam.
If you seem to be seeing the world “just fine,” that’s great. However, there’s more to your eye health than if you can see well. When deciding if it’s time to schedule your next eye exam, there are a few things to consider, but the most important one is simply timing. If your last eye exam was more than 12 months ago, it’s time!
While one eye exam every year should help you to stay on top of your eye health, some people might need more than one exam in a year. Vision can change quite a bit over the course of a year, especially for those over the age of 50, and it is important to know when to schedule an additional appointment.
Don't wait until you experience any of these eye problems or issues before you schedule an eye exam. Keep in mind that an eye exam benefits more than just your eyes. Your eye doctor can detect signs of a wide range of diseases, like diabetes or high blood pressure, just by looking at your eyes.
If anything on this list applies to you, take the time to schedule an appointment with a VSP network eye doctor. If you don’t have vision insurance to help you save on your eye exam, consider the benefits of a VSP Individual Vision Plan. You can enroll in a new plan at almost any time and start using your vision insurance the same day.
