Vision changes throughout life, and to get the most from your vision you should have your eyes checked every two years. Many of the changes caused by eye diseases such as glaucoma develop slowly without obvious signs or symptoms. Regular check-ups ensure that there is the best chance of detecting or controlling any eye disease
Before your child starts school, your optometrist can test for near sightedness, far sightedness, astigmatism and eye movement. It is important to find and address any visual problems early before they interfere with your child’s education. Find out more about the health of your child’s vision. Regular eye examinations are as important as medical examinations later in life. The sooner we find and treat any eye health problems, the better your vision will be.
