Fall is finally here – and that means school’s back in session, football is back on the TV, and you finally have a moment to breathe and watch the changing colors around you.

While you may already feel like you have a full plate this autumn (Thanksgiving jokes already!), it’s more important than ever to make room for an eye exam. Whether you need one for the upcoming school year or just want to get it out of the way before all the holiday madness, here are a few more reasons why you should get an eye exam this fall:

  1. Seasons change, and so do your eyes! If you haven’t had an eye exam this year – or in recent years – make a commitment to do it this season. If you have any problems with your eyes, your ophthalmologist can provide you with vision-correcting glasses or contact lenses so you can rock work or school.
  2. Get better peace of mind: A lot of vision problems have no symptoms, meaning you could have eye problems and not even be aware of it. An eye exam can provide you with better peace of mind.
  3. Increase Success: If you’re constantly squinting at your computer or can’t see the board from the back of the classroom, an eye exam can be a critical step for improving your vision. It’s much easier to be successful when you improve your vision!
  4. You’ll look awesome: Squinting is tough on the eyes and the face. These days, there are so many fashionable glasses that there’s really no reason to avoid them. Go on, change up your look and improve your vision!
