Eye exams are an important part of everyone's preventative healthcare routine. Just like you make an appointment with your primary care physician (medical doctor) each year for your annual check-up, you should have a comprehensive eye examination each year as well.

Eye exams are much more than a prescription for glasses or contact lenses. There are many health conditions that are first diagnosed during an eye exam, and long before there are any noticeable symptoms. Many vision problems and eye diseases can be treated with early diagnosis.

Vision changes throughout our lives, but these changes can occur so slowly that we often don't notice them. Unfortunately, even serious vision conditions may not be noticed until there is an irreversible effect on our vision – including permanent vision loss. A yearly eye exam with one of the eye doctors at Artisan Optics is the first step to maintaining your best vision possible.
