How Is Your Eye Health?
A huge number of people in the UK wear reading glasses on a regular or daily basis. But what’s worrying is that recent research has suggested that thousands of people in Britain could need prescription glasses without even realising it.
According to some research, there are huge numbers of people in the UK that haven’t even been for an eye exam; quite a shocking claim on its own, and especially when you consider that many people think they’ve got perfect vision before failing an eye test.
So let’s look at this question: why should get an eye test?
If you’ve never been for an eye test, then there really is no guarantee that you don’t need glasses. You may need distance glasses, reading glasses or any other form of prescription glasses and the only way you’ll find out is with a comprehensive eye exam with your local optician.
Eye exams are comfortable and painless and can be done in a variety of different ways, so if you’re worried, visit your optician and they’ll be able to tailor your eye test to fit your needs.
If you find out there is an issue with your sight, then glasses could change your life for the better. Poor eyesight, or straining your eyes looking at computer screens can lead to nausea, headaches and dizziness and such symptoms could continue throughout your life, if left unchecked. In these instances, glasses would improve your general health, as well as your eyesight.
There are other good reasons to get your eyes checked out too; perhaps the most important of which is that they can help to identify serious conditions like MS, tumours, hypertension and diabetes. So getting an eye test could end up giving you an early diagnosis of a serious condition, which can often be life-saving.
As far as i can see there really isn’t any good reason not to go for an eye exam; they can improve your clarity of vision, as well as your general health and wellbeing. If you do need glasses, then there’s no reason to fret – there is an amazing selection of affordable designer frames available online and in shops, get yourself a pair of Police glasses and enjoy the attention!
