Vision is often considered one of the most precious and feared senses to lose. Many eye diseases and conditions that can result in low vision or blindness—such cataracts, as age-related macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, and glaucoma—often have no early warning signs or symptoms. A yearly comprehensive dilated eye exam can help protect your sight by detecting eye diseases in their early stages, before vision loss has occurred.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may have the early warning signs of a serious eye health problem:
•Blurred Vision when Reading or Driving
•Seeing Floaters or Flashes
•Loss of Side Vision
•Seeing distorted images
•Glare and Halos
•Dry eye/Reduced tear Production
Your vision changes as you get older, but these changes don’t have to compromise your lifestyle.
