You may be familiar with the adage: “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” But, have you ever really thought about what it means? Essentially, it is saying that precaution, prevention, and preparation are easier (and often cheaper) than fixing a problem that has already occurred.
We rely on our eyes every day, so we must do everything we can to protect them from injury or disease. Many eye diseases develop and grow silently, with no pain or symptoms. Routine eye exams allow us to detect even the smallest signs of eye disease and implement treatment before they cause vision loss or blindness
In Canada, the 4 leading causes of vision loss and blindness are eye diseases. Even if your vision is stable and your eyes feel healthy, a comprehensive eye exam can detect the early warning signs of eye disease before they become apparent.
At Ideal Optical, our comprehensive eye exams are designed to not only determine your visual acuity but also thoroughly check your eyes for signs of eye disease, like glaucoma, diabetic eye diseases, cataracts, or dry eyes.
