More than 250 million people are visually impaired worldwide, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Of these cases, about 80 percent of them could have been avoided or cured. That’s why regular eye exams are so important. A checkup can be particularly helpful in detecting progressive eye conditions, such as glaucoma, a common condition that typically has few symptoms in its early stages. Some people may experience symptoms such as a change in vision or eye pain that require immediate medical attention. Any significant injury to the eye should be evaluated by a doctor, particularly if there is redness or pain that lasts for more than 15 to 20 minutes.
