Importance Of Having Eye Tests


You may be thinking of putting off booking your regular eye tests because of the risk of COVID-19 but we want to reassure you that we strictly adhere to the latest NHS guidelines and your health and well-being is our highest priority and that the importance of having eye tests is still as high as ever.

You shouldn’t put off your comprehensive eye health sight tests as they are really important for the early detection of eye health problems, and improving your vision also reduces the risk of trips and falls too. Your eyes are just as important as the rest of your body so take good care of them. It is well known that over 50% of sight loss is preventable, so getting your eyes tested can help prevent or restrict the damage caused by certain eye conditions.

Early signs of eye problems

Book an appointment for an eye exam/test and we can help detect certain vision problems (such as cataracts, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration) early, which if left could lead to vision loss.

Reducing the risk of falls

Having your eyes examined regularly means that we can help correct your vision which can really improve the quality of your day-to-day life by improving poor vision. You won’t need to fear tripping or falling over, when you are walking around your house/care home once you have had your eyes checked and your vision improved. You will be able to notice spills with enhanced eyesight so you can avoid them too.

An optometrist may also be able to spot the signs of some broader health conditions with symptoms that affect the eyes, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. High cholesterol can also be detected as the optometrist can see if there is a cholesterol build up in the blood vessels of your eyes.
