May is Healthy Vision Month (HVM), established by the National Eye Institute in May of 2003.

Millions of people living in the United States have undetected vision problems, and eye diseases. HMV is designed to elevate vision as a healthy priority by promoting the importance of early detection and treatment, as well as the use of proper eye safety practices, in preventing vision loss and blindness.
One of the most important things people can do to protect their vision is to have a comprehensive eye exam, including either dilation or an optomap retinal exam (more on the optomap tomorrow). An eye care professional looks for common vision problems, eye diseases and can also detect some systemic conditions, many of which have no early warning signs.
 A retinal exam can detect conditions in their early stages, before vision loss occurs. Today a whole range of eye problems can be treated successfully without total vision loss. We all want to protect our eyesight and overall health for ourselves and our family – that is why eye exams are so important.
An optomap shows a detailed, ultra-wide 82% view of your retina so your doctor can clearly see the markers of
disease*—and that gives you a better opportunity for early treatment.All in less than a second. 
Are you getting the big picture?
