08/28/2023 “National Eye Exam Month” By Kaylee McGrath

Opening Statement:

FACT… Everyone’s eyes and eyesight are extremely important. National Eye Exam Month is about learning on ways to keep your vision clear and healthy. FACT… As we age, getting a baseline eye exam can detect early signs of disease or possible damage to your eyes. FACT…Ophthalmologists recommend periodic eye exams every 2-4 years from the ages of 40 to 65, and every 1-2 years after the age of 65.

Why National Eye Exam Month Is Important

· Good Vision Improves Work Performance

It's tough to focus at work if you're having vision problems, which may contribute to reading and concentration issues. Getting your vision corrected would help, and make you much more efficient and successful at the office.

· Eye Exams Can Help Reveal Other Issues

Eye exams can reveal much more than simply the health of your eyes — such as issues with diabetes, glaucoma, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.

· Eye Exams Offer a Pro-active Strike.

Many diseases that affect the eye often do not have warning symptoms, but can have severe effects on vision and eye health later in life. Eye conditions can often be easily managed when caught early.

How To Observe National Eye Exam Month

Take The Exam

There is no reason to put off something this important. An eye exam usually takes about 20-30 minutes. See your doctor and make sure everything's ok.

Encourage Others to Do the Same

So many of us take the carefree approach to something like sight by simply adopting the “if isn’t broke, don’t fix it” attitude. Urge your loved ones to brave the doctor’s office and ensure their healthy vision.

Make Sure You Have the Right Prescription

Your eyes change over time. Adjusting your prescription may be necessary to reduce eyestrain, optimize performance, and make your vision as clear as can be.

Five Facts About Eyes

1. Millions Of Us Need Help

It’s estimated that around 12.2 million Americans need vision correction.

2. Don't Forget About Your Kids

Somewhere around half of all children under the age of 12 have never had their eyes checked.

3. The Eyes Have It

While it takes some time for most parts of your body to warm up to their full potential, your eyes always operate at 100%.

4. Eyes Require Enormous Cerebral Power

Seeing is such a big part of everyday life that it requires about half of the brain to get involved.

5. Eyes Can Be Fixed

Most vision problems worldwide are avoidable or curable.

Closing Statement:

While most symptoms are often ignored by many people, it is just this easy…get a simple checkup. Additionally, following a doctor’s orders can greatly lower risks of more severe and/or future damage, and you can continue to enjoy healthy vision. FACT…if you can see clearly, you will have a better quality of life and enjoy and appreciate all the beautiful things around you.
