Why have my eyes tested?
The eye examination is a quick and effective method of determining any visual disorder or imbalance that may or may not require correcting with spectacles or contact lenses. It also offers an invaluable opportunity to examine the internal structure of the eye and to detect the presence of certain diseases - Glaucoma or Diabetes for example.
How often should I have my eyes examined?
A visit every two years is sufficient for most, however the very young, the elderly and those 'at risk' because of family history or general health would be advised a more regular health check. Your optometrist will discuss this with you.
The important thing to remember is that your eyes are terribly important and, like your teeth, need regular check-ups. Certainly, in the case of eye disease, as in all illnesses, the earlier a problem is diagnosed, the earlier treatment can commence and the more successful it will be.
