Eye Health

Every day in the UK 100 people start to lose their eyesight.

Your eyes might look okay and your eyesight might be fine, but that doesn’t necessarily mean your eyes are healthy. The only way to ensure your eyes are healthy is to visit your optician to get an eye test.

Good habits for healthy eyes include:

  • Have your eyes tested regularly. You should have a sight test every two years unless otherwise advised by your optician. If you are concerned with any aspect of your vision then you should visit your optician.
     
  • Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Stop smoking, don’t drink too much alcohol, eat healthy and take regular exercise.
     
  • Protect your eyes. Wear good quality sunglasses and never look directly at the sun.
