Did you know that during an eye exam a doctor can tell if you possess high cholesterol, high blood pressure, liver or gallbladder disease or even diabetes?
Elmsford, NY (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
New York based Eye Care Associates enters its 14th year in business online as the operator of CleContactLenses.com, an online e-tailer that sells contact lenses, contact lens removers, contact solutions and other items that are eye care related. CLEContactLenses.com is supervised by a team of eye care professionals, Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, and Opticians to best service their patients’ needs and questions.
Today kicks off the first day of August and in the eye care industry that means National Eye Exam Month as CLE Contact Lenses pointed out in their latest blog post. This is the time that many eye care practices will provide discounted eye exams to get patients to come in and have their eyes examined. Any person that had a visit at the eye doctor's within the past year may have already received a little reminder post card about August being the National Eye Exam month so this might not be news to them but it will be to those that are not aware of this. The price discount is offered as an incentive to create awareness of eye exams but also to get patients to take a moment and come in and have their eyes checked at a discounted rate which is hard to pass up, especially in today's hard economic times.
Some people are religious about having their eyes checked each year while many other guilty patients are not. This is not to say that it is looked over on purpose. Sure everyone is busy with vacations, camp, getting things ready for the upcoming school year and say "I will get to it" and just don’t make the appointment until they really find an issue with their vision.
Why wait until it is too late? Everyone should make it a habit of having their eyes checked each year just like having an annual health screening or dental cleaning. Remember, these are the only pair of working eyes one will ever have so why not have those baby blues checked out once a year? What is the worst that will happen? Prescription gets changed? Discovery of an astigmatism or early signs of AMD? The list can go on but the point being is that after an eye exam is done the proper measures have been taken to help the eyes instead of letting them keep slipping away.
During an eye exam a doctor can tell if the patient possess high cholesterol, high blood pressure, liver or gallbladder disease or even diabetes. In some reported cases, doctors were able to uncover tumors in the brain. For those that are not aware of what high cholesterol does, it puts us at risk for heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, peripheral vascular disease, diabetes and retinal vein occlusion. Now wouldn’t that be great to know? An eye exam could save someone's life believe it or not.
CLE Contact Lenses hope is to create awareness of this and help people understand that that an eye exam during national eye exam month cannot only save them money but more importantly their life.
