Having constant eye exams helps you take care of your eyes better. Eye exams promote eye health, prevent possible diseases and most importantly, help save your vision.

Regularly going to an ophthalmologist and/or optometrist at least once a year will most definitely help you maintain, or attain, a good eyesight and eye health.
