Yearly eye examinations with Summerville optometrist Dr. Deavers ensure that preventive measures and necessary treatments can be prescribed to keep your eyes healthy. A comprehensive eye exam includes a number of tests and procedures to examine and evaluate the health of your eyes and the quality of your vision. These tests range from simple ones, like having you read an eye chart, to complex tests, such as using a high-powered lens to examine the health of the tissues inside of your eyes. Each of these tests are painless, but give your Summerville eye doctor a good idea about the health and development of your vision. Seeing clearly is something many people take for granted. Even if you don’t require glasses or contacts to have sharp and clear vision, you should still visit an optometrist on a yearly basis for an eye exam.
It is very important to remember that your eyesight can change over the years, even a slight amount that you don’t notice it in your daily life. However, as your vision changes certain activities may become more difficult to perform. Not getting an annual eye exam to update your optical prescription can be dangerous as you might have difficulty seeing at nighttime or while driving.
