Just as you need to see your general physician every year for a checkup and your dentist twice a year for an oral hygiene exam, you need to make plans to visit Indianapolis eye doctors at least once per year. Both optometrists and ophthalmologists can complete an annual vision exam for you, but an ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who can complete more procedures and prescribe medication if needed. By making your appointment for a vision exam with either of these two professionals, you could benefit in a number of ways.

Adjust Your Prescription

First, whether you have perfect vision or you have been wearing glasses or contact lenses for years, there is a likelihood that your prescription has changed over time. A small adjustment may not be noticeable to you until you get your prescription adjusted. Then, you will be able to see the world around you more clearly. In some cases, the prescription change can be drastic, and you may notice blurry vision or get frequent headaches as a result. Your prescription adjustment can improve this for you.

Identification of Underlying Health Conditions

Another benefit of getting an annual eye exam is the possible identification of underlying health conditions that you may not be aware of. The eye doctor will peer into the eyes to view the small blood vessels in the eye as well as other areas of the eye. By doing so, he may be able to determine if you have a potential issue with heart health, diabetes, glaucoma or other issues that may need to be treated by a medical doctor. In many cases, the eye doctor can identify these potential issues before the patient notices other symptoms, and early detection is often beneficial because treatment can begin before the condition becomes more serious.

If it has been more than a year since your last visit to any of the top eye doctors in Indianapolis for an eye exam, your prescription for glasses or contact lenses has expired. This is a good time to schedule a vision exam with your eye doctor soon, and the eye doctor can update the prescription and help you to learn more about your overall health and well-being.

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.
