Why Should I Have an Eye Test?
Everyone understands the importance of having regular checkups at the dentist and many will often go and see their GP for minor issues or just with questions, but we will often take our eyes for granted. Even if you think you have healthy eyes, the importance of having a regular eye test near Luton can’t be understated, and at Simon Donne Opticians, our team of skilled and experienced optometrists can help.
Even if you think your eye sight is great, how can you really know if you don’t ever have your eyes checked? If you struggle to read things close up or far away, or find yourself getting regular headaches, it could be a sign that you need glasses. Trying to carry on without them and straining your eyes can be unpleasant and painful, so it is vital that, if you are suffering from poor vision, you book yourself in for an appointment.
Eye tests aren’t just designed to find out the quality of your vision or identify long or short-sightedness, but are also important to try and detect any potentially serious conditions you may have.
Glaucoma is just one example of an eye condition which will often only be discovered by the patient after it is too late to treat properly. Untreated, Glaucoma can cause serious eye problems including severe loss of vision and even blindness. It will typically affect those over 40, but younger people should still have regular eye tests to ensure everything is as it should be.
Trust us to help your vision and get you back to enjoying the simple things in life like reading a book, watching TV or looking out of your window watching the world go by.
