It’s always a good time to schedule a comprehensive eye exam. After all, our vision is probably the sense that we value most at the holidays. The soft glow of the tree, twinkling lights and bright colors just wouldn’t be the same if we could not see clearly. An eye exam at the holidays could be perfect timing so you can enjoy this season to the fullest.
Maybe you do not think that you have the time to schedule an appointment at this hectic time of year, but when is your calendar wide open? There is probably not a perfect time, so there’s really no point in putting it off! Comprehensive eye exams include much more than just reading the eye chart. Take a look at what your ophthalmologist can diagnose during a short examination:
- Refractive errors like nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism
- Focusing problems
- Strabismus (crossed eyes) or amblyopia (lazy eye)
- Eye diseases like glaucoma, cataracts or diabetic retinopathy
- High blood pressure or high cholesterol
Having a comprehensive eye exam before the holidays will help you decipher the fine print on all those cookie recipes, thread your needle for stringing popcorn and read that special book in front of the fire. Make this your most meaningful holiday ever by calling your ophthalmologist today. Appointments can book up quickly at this time of year, so don’t delay. Happy Holidays!
