Why Do We Need an Eye Examination?
Our eyes are irreplaceable. We only get one pair. They are our most precious sense. An eye examination can detect early signs of health problems, such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Sight loss can be avoidable. Many people go blind every day simply because they didn’t know a problem was developing.
Eye problems can develop long before the symptoms can be seen or felt.
A sight test or eye examination is like a mini health care check as well as finding out if you require a prescription to make your vision more comfortable. If the Optician finds that a prescription will help you to see more easily then, it may be possible for you to have correcting contact lenses in preference to spectacles.
People often suffer from eyestrain when they view computer screens or work in poorly lit offices. Conversely certain lighting in offices can cause headaches.
