Have Regular Checkups

In order to keep your eyes healthy, it is important to see a doctor for eye care. The best time to visit the optometrist or ophthalmologist is during childhood before you develop bad habits like reading in poor light, straining eyesight just to mention a few. Early diagnosis of any problem will help you take corrective measures as early as possible before it becomes worse and more difficult to treat.

Since it is difficult to identify the problems such as myopia, hypertrophic or astigmatism with glasses, you will need regular eye checkups. The optometrist can diagnose these conditions accurately only if your eyes are healthy and free of any infection that might lead them to misdiagnose the problem.
