When you feel sick you go to the doctor. When it’s time to go back to school, you take your child to get a check up. But how much attention do you give to two of the most precious, delicate things you own? We’re talking about your eyes. You only get two, and if you can read these words, you are lucky enough to have clear vision! That’s why here at Metropolitan Optical, our Washington DC opticians recommend you schedule eye examinations annually. Our eye care experts are skilled, experienced, and thorough, administering the proper tests and procedures in order to provide you and your whole family with healthy eyes for a lifetime.
Routine eye examinations help detect vision problems you may be suffering from, or not even realize. Some vision problems go undetected for a long time because the human brain has ways of making up for these kinds of errors, or even tricking your eyes. Going on with poor vision can be not only frustrating, but damaging to your everyday life. Children with better vision often do better in school than children with vision problems. After all, how can you excel when you can’t read the notes on the white board? Adults also benefit greatly from correcting vision: work, activities, driving, etc., can all improve with better vision.
Eye exams often also catch eye diseases and other health problems before any obvious signs appear. Many serious eye diseases (e.g., glaucoma, and macular degeneration) have no obvious symptoms early on. By the time you recognize something is off, it may be too late to start early treatment. Our Washington DC opticians understand the importance of catching and treating eye diseases and infections early, which is why we diligently stress the importance of these kinds of regular eye exams.
Having your eye exam is the first important step, and at Metropolitan Optical, we don’t stop there. We also offer contact lens fitting and evaluations, as well as eyeglasses and lenses, so you can leave our office seeing clearly and feeling great.
