If you don’t take at least one long vacation a year to travel, you feel bad. In fact, just as traveling is important to keep the mind healthy, a full body check-up should be done at least once a year to keep the body healthy. But unfortunately we do not give much importance to this matter. Another important thing we skip is the eye exam. Regular eye exams should be done. It also has good eyesight and even if there is any eye disease, it is caught. There are certain symptoms, which should be immediately examined by the eye.

Changes in vision:
If the eyes are blurred occasionally, or there is a problem in reading something, then an eye specialist should be consulted. After that an eye examination should be done. In fact, blurred vision can be a symptom of glaucoma.
Regular aches and pains:
Although the vision is normal, sometimes there is pain in the head or eyes. Some times the eyes feel tired. If such a problem occurs, consult a doctor immediately. Occasional headaches can also be caused by pressure on the eyes.

If you have diabetes:
Diabetes also affects the eyes. Which can create various complications. The patient may even become blind. Diabetic retinopathy is an eye condition in which problems such as vision loss and blindness can occur in people with diabetes. Because this disease damages the blood vessels of the retina. So people with diabetes should have their eyes checked once a year. Although diabetic retinopathy may not have symptoms at first, catching it early can save vision.
Watery or red eyes:
There can be many reasons for this problem. It can cause watery eyes due to allergies to dust or eye infections such as conjunctivitis. And the eyes are red. It is mainly caused by infection of the cornea.
Family history of eye diseases:
Many people have genetic eye diseases. And among these diseases are retinoblastoma and glaucoma. So it is important to know whether someone in the family has this disease or not. Symptoms should also be looked at.
An eye exam is essential at any age to avoid all these problems. In other words, it is important to take care of the health of the eyes in addition to taking care of the whole health.
