Good eyesight is an essential aspect of a healthy and fulfilling life. However, sometimes people take their eyesight for granted until they experience problems. So, it's important to take the time to get your eyes examined and understand how they're functioning. Today's blog will share five things you can learn about your eyes from an eye exam. Your Visual Acuity: Visual acuity is a measurement of how well you can see details from a distance.
I still remember the day my mom took my family for our annual eye exams and I found out that I needed to start wearing eyeglasses. I really enjoyed picking out my first pair, and they were pink with cartoon characters on them! When I entered high school, my parents let me begin wearing contact lenses. I was afraid to put them in my eyes, but I was brave and did it! I recently began having lens discomfort, and I was really worried I would be told by my eye doctor that I wouldn't wear contacts anymore. I was grateful when he told me that I simply had dry eye and needed to use lubricant drops and wear my glasses a bit more often. I have since become dedicated to caring for my eyes well and I decided to start a blog to help others learn how too, too!
