Vision tests play a vital part in your overall health and wellness. Here are five reasons you should commit to regular vision tests:

1. Vision tests have the potential to help prevent 80% of all vision impairment and blindness.

According to the World Health Organization, the leading causes of vision impairment are refractive errors and cataracts. Both of these conditions can be easily corrected when they appear in vision tests.

2. Children need more frequent vision tests to set them up for success at school.

The AAO has found that the percentage of children developing myopia(or nearsightedness) is increasing, with over a third of teenagers experiencing myopia. Regular vision tests help parents track their children’s eye health so vision issues can be addressed quickly.

3. Some people have a higher risk of developing eye disease, even when they’re young.

Adults generally do not need to complete a comprehensive eye exam with an ophthalmologist until they turn 40. However, if you have one of the following conditions, you are at an increased risk of developing eye disease and potentially experiencing vision loss:

  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Family history of eye disease

4. You can do refraction testing right from your home!

Every year, adults ages 40 and older should go to an eye doctor to conduct a comprehensive eye exam. But thanks to EyeQue’s award-winning technology, you can check your general vision as often as you like from any location.
