It’s possible you have developed eye defects even if you currently see clearly. In fact, even though you score highly during your eye test, doesn’t also mean you’re in the clear.
This is because most eye defects usually go unnoticed in their early stages, just like with High Blood Pressure and other medical conditions, early detection is best.
Committing to periodic eye examinations is also a sure way to provide specialists with a track history of your eye for future examinations. This track will be used as a point of reference for subsequent examinations.

Eye diseases or defects are not the only things eye specialists can spot during eye examinations.

“This is because the eye is the only place where blood vessels can be viewed in their natural state without a surgical procedure.” the publication explains.
A great advantage of this situation is that other health issues can be detected early to investigate further by specialists and treated before complications.
To recap, eye examinations aren’t meant only for people who wear glasses but for everyone.
