There is a saying: 'The eyes are the window to the soul'. This is not just a piece of poetry, but a medical fact. Our sight is a very precious thing and changes that occur within the eye can sometimes be a good indicator of what is going on within the rest of our bodies. A regular eye check is an important part of keeping yourself in good health. Eye tests are carried out at six month, one year or a two year intervals, depending on your age and if you have an eye condition which needs to be monitored.
Eye Tests are free for the following groups:
Under 19 and in full time education
Income based Jobseekers Allowance
Income related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
If you suffer from diabetes or glaucoma
Over 40 and the parent/brother/sister/child of a person who has Glaucoma
What Your Optometrist Will Check:
Your current level of vision
If you require glasses to correct your sight
If your current glasses are still suitable
The overall health of your eyes
If you already wear glasses or contact lenses, remember to take them with you to your sight test.
Once the eye test has been completed, your optometrist will advise you on the next stage of your optical care, including any spectacles or contact lenses you may need to improve your vision.
