The Importance of Early Eye Disease Diagnosis


When we have healthy eyes, we may miss the importance of a routine eye examination. Nevertheless, timely detection of any eye or vision problems is crucial to maintaining healthy vision and eyes. This can easily be done with an eye test.


Many eye and vision ailments are a-symptomatic. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Schedule a complete optical examination at our North Vancouver office, where our experienced optometry team offers service suited to the needs of every patient. Our North Vancouver office employs cutting-edge technology ensuring a complete eye exam.


Glaucoma is the leading source of blindness, affecting over three million Americans. Often called ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can strike without any symptoms. Almost two-thirds of adults in America don't use corrective lenses and don't get regular eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at substantial risk.


The unfortunate fact is that the majority of adults don't know that vision threatening conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts are often a-symptomatic and without a comprehensive exam are frequently diagnoses only when it's too advanced.


Routine eye examinations to check for eye disease should be on your to-do list. Make sure to schedule regular eye exams with your local eye doctor to ensure healthy eyes for many long years.
