Make Visits to your Optometrist a Part of Your Healthcare Routine


Times Leader contributor and cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Alfred Casale, is an advocate of regular eye exams. His so-called “moment of awakening” came as early as first grade when his teacher realized that the real reason he was struggling with school was because he couldn’t see the notes on the chalkboard.

In his regular column, To Your Health, Dr. Casale has gone on record, pressing for regular eye exams as an important part of one’s healthcare regimen. A visit to your local eye care center is more than just getting prescription for a pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses. Beyond evaluating whether a patient is nearsighted, farsighted, or affected by astigmatism, an eye doctor can examine the eyes for diseases, and other issues that could potentially lead to more serious problems, such as total vision loss.
