WHY FULL EYE TESTS ARE IMPORTANT.
Screenings are useful to identify people who have serious eye problems. Early detection can reduce or prevent some conditions. Screenings are not a replacement for a full eye examination by a qualified Optometrist – these tests are structured to ensure your vision is as clear and comfortable as possible, The test will also be able to pick up indicators or other diseases that sometimes have no symptoms in the early stages, such as diabetes and hypertension. It is advisable to have an eye test every two years as a minimum. Don’t settle – see the professionals.
