Active-duty spouses know, there’s a lot that goes into taking care of a family. From cooking and cleaning to carpooling and homework help, you always have your hands full. And as a parent, you want nothing more than for your family to be healthy and happy. It’s important to remember that our health isn’t just physical—vision is just as important, too.
Poor vision can cause problems with depth perception, hand-eye coordination, and even balance. In addition, people with good vision are less likely to suffer headaches and eyestrain. That’s why it’s crucial for you and your children to get routine vision care exams.
What Happens During A Vision Exam
During a vision care exam, the doctor will check your eyesight through a series of tests and make sure that your eyes are healthy. This is especially important for children because if there are any problems with their vision, it can affect their development and learning. Additionally, vision problems that aren’t treated can lead to more serious health issues down the road.
Vision problems can have a huge impact on your life. They can make it hard to do everyday things, like reading or driving. Eye conditions like glaucoma and macular degeneration can even lead to blindness. Routine vision care exams can help identify these problems early on when they’re usually most treatable. Even if you have perfect vision, it’s important to get your eyes checked regularly for non-vision related conditions, like high blood pressure and diabetes.
But how often should you go? It depends on your specific health. If you have no eye issues, your doctor may suggest you get a vision care exam every two years. If you do have eye issues or related health conditions, they may recommend a vision care exam every year.
Military Dental and Vision
Healthy vision is essential for overall well-being. That’s why the Federal Employees Dental and Vision Insurance Program (FEDVIP) was expanded to include particular TRICARE beneficiaries, like uniformed services retirees, their family members, and active duty families. Having vision coverage can help protect you and your family from the high costs of vision care. With Open Season just around the corner (November 14 to midnight, December 12, 2022, ET), now is a great time to think about your family’s vision needs.
