Our optometrists carry out comprehensive eye examinations, checking not only your standard of vision but your full ocular health. This includes examining your eyes for signs of cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
Following the examination we will let you know if you would benefit from glasses and if updating your current pair would make a worthwhile difference for you.
Why are checks important?
Regular eye examinations are an important part of your healthcare as many eye diseases do not show obvious visual symptoms until damage has already started. Early detection is the key to controlling eye disease and retaining as much vision as possible. Intervals between eye examinations are recommended on an individual case by case basis, therefore, one size does not fit all. We recommend you have an eye examination as often as necessary and base the frequency on the advice of our Optometrist.
Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to book an appointment.
When to have an eye examination?
Regular eye examinations are an important part of your healthcare and are easy to forget about if you’re not having any problems. Eye diseases can start to develop with no pain or obvious symptoms and your eyes work for you from the moment you wake up to when you go to sleep (it is the most valuable of all your senses). Early detection is the key to helping preserve your vision and eye health. Your eyes are more valuable than your teeth and should be examined every 6 months to ensure you know what’s going on.
More frequent tests
We may ask you to come in for an eye examination even more often than usually recommended. This can be for a number of different reasons when deemed clinically necessary for the health of your eyes.
If you are worried about your eyes and would like to have an examination sooner than advised please get in touch with us right away.
