Look After Your Eyes

You can see ok, so why would you need an eye test? Here are three reasons why you should get your eyes tested at least every two years, writes Rob Sands

1. Most people are completely unaware if they have problems with their eyes. Glaucoma is a perfect example. Generally, it has no symptoms, however, it’s the main cause of irreversible blindness in the world. Glaucoma is easy to treat, and would almost always be picked up during a routine eye test.

2. Why not see the world better?
A misconception is that people who wear glasses can’t manage without them. In fact, the vast majority of glasses wearers I meet can see alright without them, but they see better with them on. There’s no longer any stigma attached to wearing glasses, in fact, the right pair can enhance your appearance. Since we experience the world through our eyes, why not experience it better by seeing it more clearly?

3. Reduce eye strain in this digital age. Most of us are using digital devices way more than the human eye was built for. This can stress the muscles in the eye resulting in sore eyes, headaches and even neck strain. There are digital lenses that your optician can recommend to help with this.
