How often do I need an Eye Vision Checked?
Not only are they important for indicating whether you need to start wearing glasses or need to change your prescription, but also for detecting some common medical conditions.
We recommend that you book an eye test at least every two years. However, if you notice any difference in your vision, fall into a certain age group, or have started experiencing some of the symptoms we’ve outlined below, it’s best to book an eye test appointment as soon as possible.
Anyone can develop problems with their sight, but some groups of people may be at a higher risk. This includes those aged 40 and over who have a family history of glaucoma and those aged 60 or over. If you fall into these categories it’s worth speaking to your optometrist to find out often you will need an eye test.
Many children will start needing prescription eyewear in their teens, as this is a prime time for the development of near-sightedness, or myopia. It’s important to encourage teenagers to get into the habit of regular Contact Lens Help . Uncorrected vision problems can affect all aspects of their lives: their studies at school or university; their job; even their social life or ability to play sport.
If they need help with their vision, there are all sorts of solutions – from regular glasses to prescription sunglasses, contact lenses and even prescription goggles.
As a parent we believe it’s important you have regular sight tests. Some eye problems run in the family, so identifying any problems you may have will also benefit your children.
