Accurate, caring and comprehensive eye exams is necessary to maintain the visual health of the entire family. Annual eye exams, examinations for eye diseases and proper vision development, and consistently keeping your eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions up to date, all result in optimum visual health of every member of the family from youngest to oldest. Dr. Jeff Hirschl, O.D. of Boardman Family Eyecare in Boardman, OH is always aiming to help families live every day with their clearest, most comfortable vision possible.
To get your family started with routine eye exams, one of the best times of the year is summer. One of the most important reasons for children to enjoy their time off for camp, family trips, or summer school is to ensure your child receives a yearly eye exam. Not only does proper vision play in his or her initial, as well as ongoing, success in schoolwork and extra-curricular activities, proper vision will improve your child's confidence and reduce strain.
Dr. Jeff Hirschl, O.D. explains, “The eyes are responsible for a great deal of our every day sensory experience. The eyes are, therefore, the main vehicle through which most of us learn. This is why it is so important to safeguard this incredibly valuable instrument of education and experience. Also important for children are eye exams focusing on the early detection and treatment of eye conditions like amblyopia and strabismus. These conditions can be treated very easily in early childhood, but become much more complicated if allowed to advance and develop into later childhood and adulthood."
For Mom and Dad, eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions are usually pretty stable and rarely, if ever, change. Unfortunately, this leads many adults to believe that comprehensive eye exams are only for their children, and that they no longer need routine check ups to maintain good vision health. However, in some respects it is even more important for Mom and Dad to have their annual check up than their children. This is because adults, especially those 40 years old and above, and those with underlying health issues such as diabetes, are at significantly increased risk of developing sight-threatening conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts and macular degeneration. Proper routine check ups, with a focus on early detection of these and other potentially harmful eye conditions, should be considered an important part of every adult's health regimen.
Our comprehensive family eye care includes all the most important tests and screenings to determine the overall eye health of you and your children, the whole family for corrective lenses, and make sure that the whole family sees comfortably and clearly for many years to come.
