                                                      Just because the economy is going through a tough
                                             times doesn’t mean that you can afford to spend less on
                                             your health and the health of your family- even during times
                                             of tighter budgets, people will continue to get sick, teeth will
                                             continue to get cavities, and eyesight will continue to
                                             worsen. These days, especially in developed countries,
                                             eyesight seems to be getting worse and worse. Experts have
                                             stated that the aging baby boomers population and an
                                             increase in diabetes and computer use-related eye diseases
                                             are to blame for the progression of worsening eyesight. This,
                                             however, has been good news for the optometry industry in
                                             the recent years: it has been growing at an annual rate of
                                             2.9%, with expected revenues of $14.0 billion in 2012.

        Although there have been some who have been putting off getting their eyes checked due to
the economic environment causing high unemployment rates and therefore lower disposable income,
many continued to seek eye care during the recession as optometrists reduced their prices in order to
meet the financial capabilities of their clients, and those who put off getting their eyes checked are
beginning to make appointments at their local Beverly Hills eye doctor.

        It is recommended that children get their eyes examined every one to two years; if a child was
born prematurely, has developmental issues, sustained an eye injury, has crossed eyes, or is at risk of
developing a hereditary eye disease, his or her eyes should be checked more regularly. For adults ages
20 to 39 who already wear glasses, it is recommended that they visit their optometrist every year in
order to maintain current prescriptions, and for the adults who have not previously worn glasses and are
not experiencing vision/eye problems, it is recommended that they visit their optometrist every two to
three years. Once a person turns 40, he or she should schedule an eye exam, and if no problems are
found, he or she should visit the optometrist every one or two years. However, if it is found that
corrective lenses are needed or that an eye condition has developed, how often the patient should visit
the optometrist thereafter will vary depending on the severity of the patient’s eye problem. After the
age of 60, everyone should schedule annual eye exams, regardless the existence of previous eye

         Depending on the patient’s preferences, there are a few different modern options for correcting
vision problems: glasses, contacts, and Lasik. Glasses are probably the least flexible option of the three:
the patient has peripheral-vision limiting eyewear on his or her face at all times. Contacts are more
flexible than glasses, since peripheral-vision is not compromised, and are negligible in price difference in
comparison to glasses. Beverly Hills Lasik is the most flexible option of the free since the patient’s vision
is corrected to such an extent that neither glasses nor contacts are required, cutting down on
optometrist appointment fees and the cost of updating glasses/contacts; the average 20 year-old who
wears glasses/contacts can save up to $48,000 during his or her lifetime by getting Lasik.
