It is important to have your eyes tested regularly as recommended by your optometrist. Optometrists can diagnose not just problems with sight, but also major health issues such as high cholesterol, diabetes, hypertension and many others, so it is important to have a regular, comprehensive eye examination. Even if you do not feel there is anything wrong with your eyesight, you should book in for regular eye tests to ensure there is nothing present that can effect your eyesight in the future.
An appointment every 1 to 2 years is recommended. We advise parents of children under the age of 16 to attend annually, as it is often at this stage that most growth and prescription changes take place. Patients with a strong family history of diabetes, glaucoma should also attend yearly for a check up.
