You may be surprised to learn that eye examinations are an easy and important way to protect your overall health.
A routine eye examination can help to detect signs of series health conditions like diabetes, a brain tumour and high cholesterol. Because symptoms of health conditions often don't appear until damage has already be caused, eye exams are a great way to keep a check on what's happening in your body.
Most of us get our car serviced annually to make sure it runs smoothly. We also visit a dentist regularly to get our teeth cleaned. But how many of us have regular eye examinations?
Many people wait until they notice a change in their vision to see an optometrist. But eye problems are often silent - meaning they have no symptoms, and this can be dangerous to the person who is waiting to see a change.
