Are Online Tests As Good As One From An Optometrist?
We are all busy, especially this time of year. So, seeing an app in the app store that promises the results of an eye exam without visiting an eye doctor sounds very appealing and would be a wonderful time saver…right? Sadly, it doesn’t work that way. Besides, we would miss seeing your smiling face.
Let’s start with the fact that an online eye exam doesn’t really evaluate the health of your eyes. Usually, an online eye test (more accurately, an “online vision test”) only measures your visual acuity and refractive error. These measurements tell you little or nothing about the health of your eyes and whether you have conditions such as cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration.
A comprehensive eye exam is the only way to ensure your eyes are healthy and free from sight-threatening conditions. Besides, we would miss seeing your smiling face.
So, schedule your annual eye exam today and get away from the holiday shopping roar for a few minutes. Let your flex funds pay for it too! Click here to schedule your exam. We look forward to seeing you soon!
