One of the most common questions posed to our experienced Nationwide Vision Arizona eye doctors is, “Am I a good candidate for LASIK?”
When it comes to purchasing a brand new pair of Arizona sunglasses, it seems you must come face to face with a very important decision: foregoing ever important eye protection or purchasing a pair at a designer price.
Though many trust our talented and experienced Arizona eye doctors with everything from glaucoma screenings to annual checkups to LASIK eye surgery, another area in which our optometrists truly excel is contact lens exams and selection.
One myth that our Arizona eye doctors are constantly dispelling is that general health and eye health are two totally separate entities. And while some agree that various changes to activity and diet can affect both eye health and general health, there are many who believe that the occasional lifestyle change is the only link between the two.
From afternoons in front of the screen to afternoons under the sun, life can take its toll on your eyes. But beyond regularly scheduling an annual Arizona eye exam, is there anything you can do to make sure that your peepers stay protected? Because Arizona eye care is our number one priority here at Nationwide Vision, we’ve created a list of 10 tips to help you maintain your healthy vision!
Whether they come for a pair of designer sunglasses or to make the switch to contacts for the very first time, Nationwide newcomers are always asking our experienced Arizona eye doctors: just what is so important about scheduling annual eye exams? And because our doctors always put eye care first, they couldn’t be more excited to tell you. Here are the top three reasons for scheduling an Arizona eye exam:
Every year, as inevitable as that very first morning bell, your child’s school requires your little one to take an Arizona eye exam.
And because the exam is performed by the school nurse, you might just think that this in-school vision screening may be everything your child needs when it comes to maintaining healthy vision year after year.
But unfortunately, that fact couldn’t be further from the truth.
Every sun-kissed, popsicle-craving, sprinkler-on-the-lawn-loving child knows: September means saying goodbye to those colorful Arizona sunglasses and saying hello to a binder-sized pencil pouch chock-full of school supplies.
And though your little one may not be looking forward to trading in those grass-stained shorts for a fresh school year wardrobe, the back to school to do list doesn’t just end at backpacks, ballpoint pens, and blouses: your son or daughter should also have a back to school Arizona eye exam before they hit the books.
