You should pay close attention to the health of your eyes.  Having routine eye exams is an important part of keeping your eyes healthy.  An optometrist can detect eye or other health problems by doing a complete exam oftentimes before there are many signs or symptoms.  Taking care of our eyes is essential for our other senses to work together. 

Some people are lucky enough to have good eyesight, while others have trouble seeing anything. Seeing an eye doctor at least once a year will help you maintain good eyesight and prevent future eye problems.

Sometimes people do self-diagnosis that can worsen a simple eye problem. The best thing to do is to make an appointment with an eye doctor and find out what is wrong. Seeing an optometrist at the Walmart Vision Center can help you with your vision problems.


Here are some eye problems that need to be assessed by an eye doctor:

    • Night Blindness 
    • Eyestrain
    • Colorblindness
    • Red Eyes
    • Floaters
    • Amblyopia
    • Presbyopia
    • Corneal Illness
    • Dry eyes 
    • Cataracts
    • Glaucoma

Here are the things an eye doctor will look at when examining your eyes:

    • If there is a history of eye problems in your family.
    • If you’ve been having trouble with your eyesight.
    • If it has been a while since you last visited an eye doctor.
    • If you have any of the problems with your vision listed above.
    • Other body issues causing eye pain.
