What are the risks for skipping periodic eye examinations?
Periodic examinations are an important part of routine preventive eye care. Many ocular conditions present no obvious symptoms. Therefore, individuals are often unaware that a problem exists. Early diagnosis and treatment are important for maintaining optimal vision and, when possible, preventing permanent vision loss.
The recommended frequency of comprehensive examinations varies with age, race, medical history, family history, occupation, and other factors. Individuals with ocular signs or symptoms require prompt examination. Also, the presence of certain risk factors may necessitate more frequent evaluations.
A family history of eye disease is one of the most common risk factors. However, individuals with a family history of eye disease are not more likely to get screened regularly. Ethnicity is also another important risk factor for eye disease, yet groups at high risk for Glaucoma, such as African Americans and Hispanics, are not often aware of their risks.
The American Diabetes Association also recommends that diabetic patients see an eye care professional yearly for a dilated eye exam. High blood sugar levels can lead to damaged blood vessels in the retina, the layer of nerve tissue at the back of the eye, known as Diabetic Retinopathy. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent vision loss, and it’s important to maintain good blood sugar control.
