An eye examination is really important and don’t forget we are not just checking how well you can see and if you need glasses. A large part of the examination is checking the health of your eyes and lots can be determined about your general health. Of course, we also want to make sure you have the best vision possible to keep you safe on the roads and enjoying life to the full. Everyone should have their eyes examined at least every 2 years but for some people this interval needs to be shorter. Your optometrist will advise you when your next exam is due and then we will contact you in good time to schedule an appointment at your convenience. Why would I need an exam every 6 months or year?
