Why Eye Exams Are A NecessityThe Eye Associates Boise Idaho Eye Exam

Regular eye exams are important, in protecting you and your family’s eyesight. An exam allows your doctor to detect any changes that may occur in the front of the eyes. This portion of the exam will help the doctor determine if alterations need to be made with your eyeglasses or contact lens prescription. The doctor will also look at the back of the eyes (the retinas) to check the health and make sure they aren’t damaged or showing signs of disease.

Many eye diseases, if detected early, can be treated successfully.

Regular eye care can uncover both eye and systemic (entire body) problems. If these problems are left untreated, there is a risk of disability, suffering, and loss of productivity. The goal of an eye exam is to avoid or minimize adverse effects on the eye and vision. It will also help identify any potential problems early on, to prevent the possibility of vision loss.

There are various retinal diseases and conditions of the eye which result in loss of vision. Regular eye exams are important to your eye health in detecting any of these diseases.

There are also diseases, such as diabetes and high blood pressure which can be discovered by examining the eyes. Side effects of drugs may also be observed during eye examinations. Again, early detection is the key factor in treatment and sight preservation.

When I went in to The Eye Associates for an annual eye exam, I can not tell you how surprised I was to find out that I had cataracts in both eyes. I thought I just needed a new eyeglass prescription. They told me that they were the fast growing kind and that I should have surgery right away…I have realized that Boise does not have an inversion/smog problem after all. I am very happy to report that I now have 20/20 vision in both eyes, without glasses, and that is something I have not been able to brag about in over 20 years.

I would really like to thank Dr. Kent, his staff at The Eye Associates, and at Eagle Eye Surgery Center for making what could have been a dire situation, one that I can now look back on and smile.
