JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, May 3, 2012– May is Healthy Vision Month and Clay Eye and the National Eye Institute (NEI) encourage people to recognize the value of sight and make vision health a top priority.
The NEI recently conducted a focus group and found that American adults indicated that the loss of eyesight would have a serious impact on their daily life. However, while this result came of the study, it also indicated that more than 25 percent said their last eye examination was longer than two years, and over 9 percent had never had an eye exam.
According to John Donovan, M.D., Ophthalmologist with Clay Eye Physicians & Surgeons,”A comprehensive, dilated eye exam is the best way to detect vision problems at the earliest, most treatable stage. This exam allows an Ophthalmologist or Optometrist to examine the eye through an enlarged pupil and obtain a more comprehensive look at any changes in their eye health. These exams help to determine common and correctable refractive errors as well as eye diseases that may be rare and have no warning signs or symptoms. Early detection of any eye disease is key, if you haven’t had an eye exam in the past year, schedule one today.”
