A lot of people set aside going to a regular eye exam and only notice their eyes when something goes wrong. This, of course, is not ideal as the condition may have already gotten worse by then, making it much more difficult to correct whatever problem there may be. As much as possible, eye care should be a top priority for Americans, and there are actually a number of reasons that make eye exams important, no matter what age or current eyesight state a person has. First off, vision impairments can impact performance at work or school. Visual learners comprise about 65 percent of people. When their vision is not optimal, they won’t learn as well, which compromises their abilities. In the case of children, it’s not always obvious that the problem is related to their vision. Children may express disinterest in certain activities but, after undergoing an eye exam and receiving the right corrective measure, they improve drastically in those activities.
