August is National Eye Exam Month


visionAugust is here and the UV Rays are still high and it’s important to take proper precautions to protect yourself from the sun.

August is National Eye Exam Month, a month dedicated to the importance of eye health and safety. Sears Optical founded National Eye Exam Month in 1989 and since then, most ophthalmologists promote eye safety throughout the month.

You may think you have healthy eyes and have no symptoms of vision problems, but if you are between the ages of 40 and 65, you should have your vision checked every 2-4 years; and at 65+, every 1-2 years. Some individuals may have a family history of eye disease or a chronic illness that can affect your vision. This puts you at a greater risk of vision problems, and therefore it is vital that you get your eyes checked more often than most.

Seniors are prone to blurred vision, eye irritation and more.
