One of the most common questions we hear is "how often should I have..."
Individual situations vary and you should always follow the advice your optometrist has given after they have examined your eyes. Changes in vision and eye health are often quite slow and subtle, and can easily go unnoticed if not checked regularly.
However, this general summary may be helpful:
...HAVE MY EYES EXAMINED?
...HAVE MY CHILD'S EYES EXAMINED?
...HAVE A GLAUCOMA TEST?
...HAVE AN EYE CHECK AS A DIABETIC?
...HAVE A CONTACT LENS CHECK-UP?
Remember, we will advise you of the interval between visits which is appropriate for your vision and eye health needs. This time does vary for different situations, so we always contact our patients when their next routine check is due.
