Resolution 1: Get Regular Eye Exams
Most patients are advised to have their eyes tested every two years or in some cases every year.
An eye test does not just identify whether you need glasses or not. It is important to monitor eye health, especially if there is a family history of eye diseases. Some health conditions can effect vision and eye health such as diabetes, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
For children regular eye tests are crucial as poor eyesight can seriously effect their education and behaviour. It is recommended that children under sixteen are tested once a year and in some cases more regularly.
Some eye problems have few symptoms like pain or redness, be sure to have the health of your eye checked to detect and treat these issues.
Mackey Opticians provide free NHS eye tests to under nineteens and over sixties as well as patients receiving benefits or those who suffer from diabetes or glaucoma.
