A visit to the eye doctor is important for everyone, even if they don’t need glasses. That's because a comprehensive eye exam can reveal early signs of serious health conditions, like diabetes.
VSP partnered with Oprah Daily and four VSP network eye doctors to talk about the importance of an annual eye exam. Signs of serious health conditions like diabetes can be detected through a comprehensive eye exam—in fact, doctors of optometry can detect more than 270 serious health conditions1. As Dr. Danielle Richardson said, “what’s happening in the eye, is happening in the rest of the body.”
