No matter what your age, your eyesight changes over time. Usually this is a gradual process, so you may not even realise your vision has deteriorated. In fact, patients often tell me that the first time they recognise their eyesight is not as good as it could be is when they read the test chart at our practice.
That’s why it’s important to have regular eye tests. These will help to ensure your optical prescription is up to date and your glasses have the right lenses. As a result, you’ll be able to see more clearly and so be less likely to suffer from ‘eye strain’, ‘tired eyes’ and even headaches.
An eye test is also a vital health check. For example, it can detect hidden conditions, such as glaucoma, diabetes and high blood pressure, which may seriously affect your vision unless they’re diagnosed and treated in time.
So it’s always a good idea to have regular eye tests, even if nothing appears to be wrong. That’s why it’s highly recommended most adults should have an eye check every two years.
Our optometrist is very compassionate and takes the time to explain your vision enabling you to understand and recommend the best solution for you.
