The short answer is to prevent blindness. Much of the sensory information going to the brain is visual. Eye diseases and vision disorders may cause disability, pain, decreased productivity, and even loss of sight. Early detection and treatment may minimize and even prevent the damage.
There is a difference between a vision screening and a comprehensive eye exam. A vision screening identifies vision problems, but it does not take the place of a comprehensive eye exam. A vision screening is like measuring your blood pressure; it only gives one aspect of your overall health. A comprehensive eye exam, which can only be conducted by an optometrist or an ophthalmologist, is an in-depth assessment of your eye health and vision status.
As a person ages, the possibility of ocular and systemic disease increases, and age related changes in vision and the eye make comprehensive eye exams particularly important for older patients.
