“EYE CARE” FOR YOU | The tribune of the savannah

Dr. J. A. Parker

As we enter the end of the year and this holiday season, take a moment and reflect to find something good that has happened to us in terms of our health. Maybe you’ve been able to get better control of your blood pressure or diabetes, or maybe you got a clean bill of health from your annual medical checkup. Hope you visited your eye care provider this year and got a good report too. Eye health is a health issue that many take for granted. We assume that just because we can see well and our eyes don’t hurt, our eyes are fine. Well… that’s not always so true.

Good vision and healthy eyes don’t come automatically. They are truly a gift, and it is our responsibility to ensure that our bodies (including the eyes) stay healthy. Therefore, an annual eye exam is something we need to make sure we put on the schedule every year. At least once a year, if you are in excellent health, you should have a comprehensive eye exam. And if you have medical conditions such as diabetes and high blood pressure, cholesterol, allergies, arthritis and others, more than one visit to an eye doctor may be needed per year. Your comprehensive eye exam should include not only evaluating your vision, but a dilated eye exam will determine the health of your eyes. Knowing (and not assuming) that your eyes are healthy helps confirm that you will have the potential to have good vision in the future.

When was your last eye exam? If it’s already been over a year, you still have time before the end of 2021. Don’t lose sight of what’s important. Imagine a world without your vision… I invite you to visit EnVision Eye Care if you need eye care services.
