Eye Examinations in Coral Springs

People with a history of eye issues should get an eye examination every year. If you’re between the ages of 20 and 30, you should get an eye examination every two years even if you don’t have a history of eye issues.

Not only can eye examinations test your vision, but they can also see if you have diabetes, tumors, blinding eye diseases and other medical conditions that you may be unaware of.

If you ever experience vision changes, injury, tearing, flashes of lights or other issues, you should visit Vision World of Coral Springs immediately even if you don’t have issues with your vision being blurry.

After you turn 30-years-old, you should have an eye examination every year. Eye diseases, vision changes, and focus issues often become an issue after this age.

People who have diabetes should get eye examinations every year to check for medical conditions. People with diabetes are at risk for eye disorders such as diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, cataracts and other diseases.

If you experience squinting, headaches, changes in vision and constant rubbing and blinking, this may be a sign of eye problems such as eye diseases and other issues. If you experience any of these symptoms, be sure to schedule an appointment with Schedule an Appointment with us immediately.
