For those of us with eyes that are in good condition, we sometimes miss the importance of taking preemptive steps such as an optical examination. However, timely detection of any eye or vision problems is critical to keeping your eyes healthy. And all it requires is an eye exam.

A significant number of eye and vision ailments are a-symptomatic. Therefore, individuals are often unaware that problems exist. Schedule a complete eye exam at our office in Duvall, where our highly-trained optometry team offers service suited to the needs of every patient. Our Duvall practice uses cutting-edge equipment to provide you with a complete eye exam.

Unfortunately, more than three million Americans have glaucoma, the main cause of vision loss but only 50% of them realize this. Often referred to as ''the sneak thief of sight'', glaucoma can cause significant harm absent of symptoms. More than half of adults in America fail to use visual aids and don't schedule regular eye exams, therefore putting their eyes at great risk.

The unfortunate fact is that the majority of Americans don't realize that blinding diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration are often a-symptomatic and without a comprehensive eye exam are often diagnoses only when it's too late.

Routine eye and vision examinations to check for eye disease should be a priority. Be sure to set up regular eye exams with your local eye doctor in order to maintain your vision and eye health for many long years.
