DID YOU KNOW YOUR VISION BENEFITS MAY EXPIRE SOON?

A friendly reminder from your neighborhood eye doctor to use your family’s vision benefits* before they expire. Many vision plans do not roll over into the next year, so if you don’t use your vision benefits you may end up losing them. Your insurance plan may cover eye exams, as well as prescription glasses, prescription sunglasses, and contact lenses. You may save even more if you have a Flex Spending Account (FSA) or Health Savings Account (HSA). Our doctors will thoroughly check your eyes to help detect any early signs of eye or health issues, so that you’re ready to take on the new year. Come see us before the end of the year, and get the most out of your vision insurance. Scheduling your appointment online is easy!

*Insurance plans may vary. Consult your benefits for details.

Your Yearly Eye Exam*

Annual eye exams are a recommended cornerstone for ensuring the health of your eyes. In addition to checking for changes in your vision and updating your prescription, your doctor* will also look at your overall eye health, internally and externally.
Prevention and early detection are keys to maintaining healthy eyes, as some eye health issues have no immediate symptoms but can still cause damage if left untreated. That’s why regular check-ups are critical.

Wellness starts with being well-informed

During your eye exam, the Independent Doctor of Optometry* at or next to Pearle Vision may create a personalized Eye Health and Wellness Report to summarize your visit. In addition to noting any problems, conditions or diseases found during your eye exam, your Independent Doctor of Optometry may provide you with a report outlining the next steps you should take. It’s a valuable tool some Independent Doctors of Optometry* offer to help you maintain and improve your eye health and vision.

Changes in vision that occur with age include reduced pupil size, dry eyes, loss of peripheral vision, decreased color vision, and vitreous detachment. The most common vision problem that comes with age is presbyopia, which is the normal and unavoidable age-related loss of focusing ability. Different types of lenses can provide help for presbyopia. The risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy increases with age too. Your optometrist will discuss any age-related vision problems you’re experiencing at your next annual eye exam.

Finding the perfect lens for you is sometimes a process of trial and error. All of the lens parameters can be finalized only after you’ve worn the successful combination. Schedule an eye exam to talk with your optometrist about whether contact lenses would be a good vision correction option for you.
