When to See an Optometrist

The Eyes on Henry Team Discusses When to See an Optometrist

Seeing our optometrists is an important part of care for the health of your eyes.

Here are some signs to watch out for so you know when it is time to get an eye exam.

A Sudden Change In Your Vision

If you are noticing that your vision doesn't seem as crisp as it did in the past, if you struggle to read small print or see signs when driving, or if you have difficulty distinguishing items from afar, you are likely to be suffering from a vision change. Our optometrists will conduct an exam to test your vision and will give you a prescription for glasses or contacts if necessary. If you previously wore corrective lenses, a switch in strength may be necessary.

The Presence Of Shadows Or Lights

If you notice flashes of light or floating spots of light obstructing the view of your vision, getting a checkup to rule out retinal problems is best. Shadows getting in the way of your vision could mean a case of macular degeneration. Each of these situations requires the assessment from our optometrists so that proper treatment is obtained.

A Year Has Passed Since Your Last Appointment

It is best to see our optometrists on a yearly basis. If twelve months have passed, contact our office to schedule an appointment for your yearly exam. This is extremely important as our optometrists will notice if there is a change in the health of your eyes, necessitating treatment options to remedy the situation. Letting too much time pass between appointments could cause your vision or eye health to deteriorate unnecessarily.

  • "I was notified that my glasses were ready for pick up. I went to the office without an appointment and the receptionist directed me to the appropriate area. I received my glasses, had a minor adjustment made by the technician, and was out the door 10 minutes after arriving! Great staff and great service."
