When a new season rolls around a lot of people start to remember that they have new doctors appointments and things that they have to attend to. Here at Wilkinson Eye Center, we like to remind our patients every now and again that it’s time to get their eyes examined. But how can you tell if you should do it this fall or wait a little longer? Let’s take a closer look.
A Change In Vision
One of the biggest reasons why we encourage patients to come into our office for an eye examination is if they experience a change in vision. For instance, has your vision started to get worse? Are you suffering from frequent headaches? Has your vision started to suddenly get blurry? Do you see floaters? Any of these changes in vision are an indication that you need to come into our office and get an eye exam this fall.
It’s Been a Year
On average, we encourage patients to come into our office to get an eye examination done about every year. If it has been a year or more since your last exam, then make sure that you schedule an appointment at our office and get things taken care of. During your eye exam we will check for eye diseases like cataracts and glaucoma, and we will also do an eye exam to give you a new prescription for contacts and glasses.
You Have Diabetes
If you have recently been diagnosed with diabetes, then make sure that you schedule an appointment with our office. Because diabetic retinopathy is something that a lot of diabetic patients get, we want to make sure that you are in the clear and that you don’t have the beginning signs of this disease.
If you run into any vision points at any time of the year, make sure to give us a call. Ready to schedule your fall eye exam? Contact our Pontiac or Clarkston office today and call us at (248) 334-4931.
