The eye is the most valuable camera you will ever own. Sight is the sense we fear losing most. However many of us are not looking after our eyes properly and many of us are not aware of how vulnerable we may be to sight loss.


1Why are eye tests so vital?

It’s easy for us to neglect our eyes, because they don’t usually hurt when something is wrong. Many eye conditions do not show any signs or symptoms in the early stages and when we do notice a problem it may be too late to reverse damage done and more difficult to prevent further damage.
Having an eye test will not only tell us if you need new glasses or there is a change in prescription, but it will also check the health of your eyes.


How often do I need to visit the optician?3

Unless otherwise advised by your  optician, you should have and eye test every 2 years.
Sometimes, your optician may want to see you more often, for example, if you are diabetic or have a strong family history of a particular ocular problem. They will explain that to you during your eye test.
