All About Eye Exams

Eye exams aren't just to check for blurry vision — they're an essential part of your health care.

Did you know serious health problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure and even cancer often are first detected during a routine eye exam?

Also, many people who have eye conditions that can cause vision loss and even blindness aren't aware of it until it's too late.
