Proper eye care can not only help ensure healthy vision, but can help lead to overall good health. Comprehensive eye exams can often be early indicators of common health conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and even tumors.  
Early detection plays a crucial role in providing preventative measures and reducing overall healthcare costs. The following eye health statistics illustrate the importance of regular eye care:  

Over 75% of the U.S. population between age 25 and 64 require some form of vision correction.1

A recent study found that blurred vision causes more hardship in people’s daily lives than a history of major illness such as diabetes, high blood pressure and heart attack.2

More than 28 million Americans over age 40 have eye ailments that put them at risk for vision loss and blindness, researchers warn the numbers will surge as the population ages.3
