Accurate, friendly and comprehensive eye care is an essential part of maintaining the overall visual health of the entire family. Routine eye exams, screenings for eye diseases and proper development, and keeping up with constantly changing eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions all play a vital part in the long term visual health of every member of the family from youngest to oldest. Dr. Tom Felstet in Billings, Montana is always aiming to help families live every day with their clearest, most comfortable vision possible.
Comprehensive Eye Exams With Our Optometrist in Billings
Proper eye care for the whole family starts with routine eye exams. Among the most important reasons for children is the central role that proper vision plays in his or her initial, as well as ongoing, success in schoolwork and extra-curricular activities. Dr. Tom Felstet explains, “The eyes are responsible for a great deal of our everyday sensory experience. The eyes are, therefore, the main vehicle through which most of us learn. Therefore, it is so important to safeguard this incredibly valuable instrument of education and experience. Also important for children are eye exams focusing on the early detection and treatment of eye conditions like amblyopia and strabismus. These conditions can be treated very easily in early childhood but become much more complicated if allowed to advance and develop into later childhood and adulthood.
For Mom and Dad, eyeglass and contact lens prescriptions are usually stable and rarely, if ever, change. Unfortunately, this leads many adults to believe that comprehensive eye exams are only for their children, and that they no longer need routine checkups to maintain good vision health. However, in some respects it is even more important for Mom and Dad to have their annual checkup than their children. This is because adults, especially those 40 years old and above, and those with underlying health issues such as diabetes, are at significantly increased risk of developing sight-threatening conditions, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Proper routine checkups, with a focus on early detection of these and other potentially harmful eye conditions, should be considered an important part of every adult's health regimen.
