Experience an expert eye examination that is individually tailored to your needs.
You rely on your eyesight for almost everything you do in life - imagine how you'd be affected if it was compromised.
An eye examination looks at far more than just your vision. It also checks your general eye health and can detect other general health issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Without having an eye test, not only your eye health, but your overall health could suffer.
It is recommended that you have your eyes tested at least once every two years, even if you feel that everything is fine. In some cases, we ask people to return more frequently, depending on their medical history and age. This is because very often if you do have something wrong, you won't notice any symptoms until damage has already been caused.
By keeping up with your routine examinations it's more likely that any potential dangers are spotted before they cause a problem to your vision or eye health. Experts say that 50% of sight loss can be avoided. Older people with sight loss are three times more likely to experience depression than people with better eye health.
Not only is an eye test important for you - it's essential for children, too. It's estimated that one in four children in the UK have never had an eye test, despite the fact it's free for under-16s. Children's eyes are fully developed by the time they reach the age of eight, which is why it's vital to spot vision problems early, so that effective treatment can begin. Eye tests at school are not the same as a full eye exam by a professional optometrist, which is why it's important to come to us, to ensure you're looking after your and your family's complete eye health.
At Ideal Eyecare we offer an unrivalled eye examination that is tailored to your individual needs by our optician.
