For those of us blessed with healthy eyes, it's easy to forget about the importance of a routine eye test. However, timely diagnosis of any eye or vision problems is necessary to keeping your eyes healthy. This can easily be done with a simple eye exam.

Glaucoma is the primary source of vision loss, resulting in loss of sight for over three million Americans. Often nicknamed ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can strike without any symptoms. Practically two-thirds of adults in America don't use corrective lenses and don't schedule comprehensive eye exams, therefore leaving their eyes at greater danger.
The danger is that most individuals don't realize that sight-stealing conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration often have no early symptoms and without a comprehensive exam are often discovered only when it's too late.
Routine eye and vision examinations to screen for eye and vision problems should be a priority. Make sure to set up regular eye exams with your local optometrist to ensure your vision and eye health for years to come.
