The Importance of Early Eye Disease Detection


For those of us blessed with eyes that are in good condition, we might overlook the importance of a routine eye examination. However, early detection of eye disease is necessary to keeping your eyes healthy. And all it takes is an annual eye exam.


A significant number of optical diseases are a-symptomatic. Consequently, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. You can schedule a thorough optical exam at our office in Kennett Square, with our highly-trained optometric team. Our Kennett Square vision center employs the latest equipment to provide you with a thorough eye exam.


Unfortunately, more than three million Americans have glaucoma, the leading source of vision loss but only 50% of them realize this. Glaucoma is often referred to as ''the sneak thief of sight'' because it can strike absent of symptoms. Almost two-thirds of adults in America don't use corrective lenses and don't schedule comprehensive eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at great risk.


The danger is that the majority of adults are not aware that sight-stealing diseases such as glaucoma and macular degeneration often have no early symptoms and without a comprehensive eye exam are often diagnoses only after it's too advanced.


Early eye disease screening should be a priority. Make sure to set up regular eye exams with your local eye doctor in order to ensure healthy eyes for many long years.
