Regular eye examinations are extremely important. As well as ensuring that your vision is as good as it can be, comprehensive eyecare checks ensure that any change to the health of your eyes is detected as early as possible.
An eye examination is not only important for your eye health. Many general health conditions can also be detected from your eyes, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and even brain tumours.

Many minor conditions are diagnosed and treated by your optometrist. However, more serious conditions need to be referred appropriately to either your GP or an ophthalmologist. Your optometrist is highly trained to examine your eyes and detect any signs of concern. This allows for the most appropriate treatment or referral pathway to be followed.
