Q&A with Dr. Huff

Dr. Huff Answers Your Eyecare Questions

Why should I get my eyes examined if I see perfectly?

Even if you have perfect vision, it is still a good idea to have an eye examination every 2 years if you are under 60 years old and every year if you are older. There are quite a few diseases we can detect during an eye examination that do not have symptoms. At least one of those can cause blindness, and that disease is glaucoma. Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the United States for people over 40 years old. The most common type of glaucoma develops slowly without any symptoms. It causes optic nerve damage that may eventually lead to blindness. The cause of the nerve damage is usually elevated intra ocular pressure which cannot be felt. This has nothing to do with blood pressure. The health of the optic nerve and the intra ocular pressures are evaluated during a comprehensive eye examination to check for glaucoma. Although most glaucoma presents in people over 40, glaucoma can be found in young children as well as people of all ages. Schedule your comprehensive eye exam today!
