Eye Exams & Health | Ooltewah, TN – Walk-In Clinic

Eye Health Is Part Of Your Overall Physical Health

We are blessed in Ooltewah, Chattanooga, and the surrounding East Tennessee area with an abundance of outside activities to maintain our overall physical health.  We have lakes and rivers for a wide variety of watersports such as swimming, fishing, skiing, wakeboarding, kayaking, and canoeing.  Our wooded mountains and beautiful rolling hills offer greenways, walking trails, hiking trails, and year-round options for the hunting community.  While these physical activities are beneficial to our body and mind, we often take for granted what we can do on a daily and annual basis for maintaining or improving our vision and eye health.

Eye exams and eye health at AFC Urgent Care

Maintaining eye health is very important as most of us rely on our vision daily to do our jobs, interact with family and friends, and enjoy our hobbies and interests.

Countless studies have shown the importance of getting a regular complete physical exam as part of a healthy lifestyle. While many people are mindful of getting their regular yearly physical, they may overlook the importance of getting a regular, comprehensive yearly eye exam.

Technology and Eye Health

In today’s world we look at computer screens, phones, watches, tablets and televisions more than ever.  We are constantly keeping our focus on a screen, often from the time we wake up until the time we go to sleep.  This constant screen-time can have both an immediate and long term affect on our vision.  Headaches, eye strain, fatigue, and blurry vision are just a few of the side effects of too much screen time.

It is important to take regular breaks from your screen.  Every twenty minutes you should close your eyes or move away from your computer or other devices for a few minutes to reduce these and other potential eye related issues.  Doing this is not just good for your eyes but for your overall health as well.

Eye Exams Can Reveal Other Health Issues

In addition to revealing issues directly associated with the eyes, a comprehensive exam can reveal the potential for other health issues.  These include serious diseases such as diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, cancer, thyroid disease, tumors and more.

If your eye exam reveals the potential for a more serious medical condition you can work with your doctor to find the best course of treatment.

Walk In For An Eye Exam Today

So the next time you are having a picnic or a stroll on the Riverwalk, fishing or boating on Lake Chickamauga, or golfing on one of our area’s award winning golf courses, take a moment to appreciate the view and realize the gorgeous landscape and scenery cannot be appreciated unless you maintain your vision and eye health.
