The Importance of Eye Care and Check Ups

Why You Should Have Yearly Eye Exams

Drs. Rozanne Fratto and Ernest Chang and all the team at Fratto Optometry offer the best family eye care in Fairfield. As your eye doctors, they want you to know how important a regular eye exam is for you. If you want to preserve your good vision, consider scheduling an eye exam with our highly experienced eye doctors.

Reasons You Should Have an Eye Exam

Parents often believe their child can see perfectly well because they passed a vision screening at school or the motor vehicle department. Unfortunately, these assumptions are not correct.

A vision screening is what its name implies – it screens out individuals who have obvious vision problems. Only a comprehensive eye exam given by a trained optometrist can ensure your vision is as comfortable and clear as possible.


Often called nearsightedness, myopia is at high levels among school-aged children. When a child becomes nearsighted very early in life, they have a significantly greater risk of potentially sight-threatening eye conditions later in life, such as glaucoma, cataracts, and retinal detachment.

Eye Exams Help your Children Succeed in School

80 percent of what children are expected to learn outside and in the classroom requires good vision. An annual eye exam is the only way you can be sure your kids see the best for classroom, sports, and other activities.

An Eye Exam Enables Your Optometrist to detect other Serious Health Problems

Routine eye exams are important for detecting serious health problems including high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, etc.


In most cases of early glaucoma, there are no discernable symptoms. A routine eye exam will detect the presence of high eye pressure and other risk factors for glaucoma.
