When it comes to the health of your eyes, it may be difficult to separate fact from fiction. However, one fact that is not difficult at all is that it is important to maintain healthy eyes for as long as possible.

You might think your vision is fine or that your eyes are healthy, but visiting an eye care professional for a comprehensive dilated eye exam* is the only way to really be sure.

Another fact is that many common eye diseases, such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and age-related macular degeneration, often have no warning signs. There can also be smaller, simpler issues like nearsightedness or farsightedness that can sneak up without warning.

It is one thing to read an eye chart or look through a phoropter, but it’s another thing to thoroughly examine the entire overall health of the eye. Eye health takes genuine, personalized care, and that is exactly what Pearle Vision offers.

Nobody cares for eyes more than Pearle. The experts at Pearle Vision know healthy eyesight is equally important for all members of the family. Whether it’s the ‘over 40 mom’ who concerned about her eyesight is changing, or the soon-to-be 10 year-old son who’ll only wear his reading glasses in they’re in his favorite color.

I love that care is the number one priority at Pearle Vision. They take the time to listen and understand what’s important to every person who walks through the door.

I have been wearing glasses since I was in the fourth grade. In all my years of exams, I have never had anyone take the time to educate me about the health of my eyes and advanced care options. A visit to my neighborhood Pearle Vision provided those things and much more.

The eye experts and other staff really went above and beyond for me and my son’s office visit to show how much they care – just like they did with Ben and his family!

Every part of my son’s and I exams* were explained to us clearly and carefully. We were not given just one test, but a multitude of tests to fully determine the health of our eyes.

Afterwards, the eye experts not only discussed the results of our tests in detail, but also showed us a large digital image of our eyes so that we could see our eyes’ health for ourselves. Lastly, the eye experts encouraged us to ask questions, and offered advice on practices we can put into place to keep our eyes healthy for a lifetime.

I feel good knowing that I have a partner in helping me and my family care for our eye health in Pearle Vision! All of the experts and staff take the time to focus on the important things: people, and their eyes.

The friendliness, clear answers and personal attention they give simply cannot be matched! Plus, they offer a wonderful selection of prescription eyeglasses, sunglasses, and contacts to accommodate my family members.

One more inarguable fact is that an eye care professional is the only one who can determine if your eyes are healthy and if you’re seeing your best.

The many benefits of eye health make me happy that Pearle Vision will be by my side to help safeguard the health of my and my family’s eyes in order to have healthy vision throughout our lifetime.

    It’s amazing that we use our eyes every day, but don’t really think about how important it is to take care of them! This is definitely some great information. Thanks for sharing.

  • TheNewClassy

    I am not positive about the health of my eyes, but I do feel like I need glasses. I can tell that I am squinting when I look at my computer screen.

  • Veronica Solomon

    I know I need a check up. I see glasses in my future

  • Mistee Dawn

    I think people definitely take their eye health for granted. I have worn glasses since 3rd grade. So I know how important that it is.

  • Myrah Falco Duque

    I’ve been wearing glasses since I was 9 years old….so taking care of them and getting check ups are real important to me.

  • Shannon Graham

    My sister loves going to Pearle Vision. I have to say, I was naive about how bad my eyes were until I got checked out.

  • Jeanine @

    Great info! I have had my eyes checked often as I do have glasses for reading and watching tv/computer use and when tired… but I should have done it long ago. My kids have frequent visits.

  • Toni Dash

    This is informative! Think I need to have my eyes checked!

  • Eileen Mendoza Loya

    Maintaining eye health is always so important to my family. We regularly schedule eye check ups, especially me, because Diabetes can wreck havoc on the vision. I am glad Pearle Vision does really care for their patients!

  • Theresa

    My husband always went to Pearle Vision growing up, so it was only natural that we started taking our kids there for their eye exams as well. We love how professional they are and they always have a great selection of frames to choose from.

  • Melissa Chapman

    I wear glasses so I see an eye doctor quite regularly and so do my kids who both wear glasses. We see different doctors at different times so it is good to know that Pearle vision is a caring company that we would be able to trust.

  • It’s great that you went in and got your eyes checked out! It’s definitely important! It’s a big priority for us!

  • meagan goepferich

    I really need to go get my eyes checked again. I know my vision is changing.

  • It is about time that I go to my local Pearle Vision! It has been a long time since I had my prescription updated.

  • Pam W

    Regular eye exams are so important! You never know what kind of issues could be hiding.

  • We have yearly eye exams in our home. It’s so important to stay on top of your eye health. I haven’t been to Pearl in years. I’ll have to check it out.

  • Robin Rue

    I actually haven’t had an eye exam in about 10 years. I know, I know…I need to get over to Pearl and get them checked.
