The Importance of Eye Exams

Eye Exams with our Portland Optometrist

Just as you see your physician for annual checkups, it is important to have routine eye exams. These exams are a crucial part of ensuring that your eyes and vision stay in good condition throughout the years. At Foster Vision in Portland, we provide comprehensive eye exams. Find out more about why you should schedule these exams on a regular basis. 

Updated Prescriptions

If you need corrective lenses, such as eyeglasses or contacts, for nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism, your prescription can change over the years. As you get older, your prescription is more likely to need adjusting, especially if you start developing age-related eye conditions, such as cataracts. Going for a routine eye exam means that you will have an updated prescription, so you can continue to see as clearly as possible and avoid eye strain. 

Early Detection of Eye Diseases

Having eye exams on a regular basis is a good way to make sure that eye diseases are caught early. Finding these diseases early means that you will receive prompt treatment, which helps protect you from vision loss and other eye problems. While these exams are important for all ages, your risk of developing eye diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration, increases as you get older. Keep in mind that treating these diseases as early as possible can help slow their progression, which reduces your risk of vision loss. 

Signs of Other Diseases

Seeing our eye doctor in Portland for routine eye exams can reveal if you have any health concerns that your physician should look into. Our eye doctor can check your eyes for signs of serious conditions, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Having these conditions detected early helps lower the risk of complications that could affect your vision.

Testimonials

  • We use Anderson Optometry for all of our family’s vision needs. Recently, we had to have our youngest fitted for new glasses and he made the experience fun for her and informative for us. We know Dr. Anderson will always take good care of our family’s eye care and that’s why we wouldn’t go to anywhere else.

  • Dr. Anderson and his staff are so patient and friendly. Dr. Anderson prescribed me glasses and I had the toughest time picking out frames. They didn’t rush, but instead made helpful suggestions and now I have an awesome pair of frames, not to mention the fact that I can see ten times better than before. You guys are the best!
