If you are like many others, you may have heard the recommendation to visit an Indianapolis optometrist annually, but you may not remember the last time you had an eye exam from an optometrist. There are several good reasons why you may need to visit the optometrist soon for an annual check-up, and these are among the top reasons.

Update Your Eyeglasses or Contact Lenses Prescription

It can be difficult to determine on your own if your prescription for contact lenses or eyeglasses in Indianapolis has changed unless there has been a major adjustment to your vision. However, even a minor adjustment can impact eyesight, and you may find yourself squinting to see things others see clearly. This can cause headaches, make everyday tasks challenging and result in dangerous driving when you are behind the wheel. Updating your prescription regularly is the best way to avoid these downsides associated with poor eyesight.

Learn About Underlying Health Conditions

You may not realize it, but your eye doctor does more than simply update your prescription for contact lenses and glasses. He or she also can check on overall eye health, and this can tell the doctor about general body health in a number of ways. A vision exam can tell your doctor if you suffer from cataracts or other vision or eye issues, and the exam is also a great way to learn about some types of cancer, diabetes, glaucoma, nerve issues, heart issues, high blood pressure and more. In fact, many people have learned about the possibility of having these or other health issues through the findings in an annual vision exam.

While these are among the top reasons to see an optometrist, they are not the only reasons. If you are having vision issues or if it has simply been awhile since your last eye exam, now may be a great time to contract your optometrist in Indianapolis to set up an appointment. This is is one of the best steps you can take to protect your vision and to learn more about your total body health.

Testimonial

Very, very satisfied with my visit! I recently moved to Indianapolis and needed to get some new glasses and try contacts for the first time. The office was easy to make appointments with, and the doctor (Amy) was EXTREMELY friendly and knowledgeable. I was able to get the contacts I needed, as well as lenses put into a pair of glasses I purchased online. -- All at an affordable price.
