The Importance of Regular Eye Exams in West Des Moines

Periodic optometric examinations are an important part of routine preventative health care. Many eye and vision conditions present no obvious symptoms. Therefore, individuals are often unaware that a problem exists. Early diagnosis and treatment are important for maintaing good vision and, when possible, preventing permanent vision loss.

The need for and frequency of optometric examinations vary with age, race, medical history, occupation and other factors. Individuals with ocular signs or symptoms require prompt examination. In addition, the presence of certain risk factors may necessitate more frequent evaluations based on professional judgement.
