Even if you do not think you need glasses, as you get older it becomes even more important to have your eyes examined regularly
Conditions like Glaucoma, Cataract, Diabetes and other age related conditions can adversely affect your vision and often develop slowly meaning they may go unnoticed until serious damage has been done.
However, the good news is that most conditions can be treated successfully if detected early enough.
It’s recommended that adults have their eyes tested every two years, unless their optician advises them to have a sight test more often than that.
The way a sight test is carried out is governed by law. A sight test will identify:
- what your level of vision is
- whether you need glasses to correct your sight
- Your eyes and the area around them will be examined, to look for signs of injury, disease or abnormality.
