An eye examination should be part of everyone’s normal health routine and is an important part of looking after your eyes, but it’s more than a simple test of your sight. Your optometrist is able to check your eye health and other general health issues during an eye examination and give advice.We recommend everyone should have an eye exam at least every 2 years. Many people consider a routine visit as an opportunity to have their spectacles or contact lenses checked, and if necessary, renewed. However, much more goes into the examination to check for ocular and general health, glaucoma risk and many other conditions which may be missed otherwise.
Here are some important reasons to have a regular eye examination and look after your eyes:
- Detect early signs of any eye conditions
- Detect other general health issues
- Good vision helps you work and play safely and comfortably
- Unlike your teeth, your eyes wont hurt if something is wrong
