Eye Health

Having regular eye tests can help identify any problems occurring with your eyes.

These pages are meant to provide a brief insight into some of the more common eye diseases encountered in routine optometry practice.

They are not meant to be comprehensive, there are many excellent sites devoted to these conditions. However we hope that you will find the information here of interest.

 

The good news is that the risk of developing sight threatening disease is drastically reduced if the early changes are detected and if developing beyond a certain level are treated, usually with a laser, to stop progression. This is why all people with diabetes should have at least an annual eye examination. There is now a national screening program for diabetic retinopathy where patients are screened by digital retinal photography. This should normally be undertaken annually to enable detection of early changes.

For our most advanced and comprehensive eye examination please see our Vision Plan.
