An eye examination should be part of everyone’s normal health routine. Most people should have their eyes examined every two years. We are able to check out other general health issues during an eye examination and give advice.
We have enormous clinical experience and Tracey Kingston White has been a qualified optometrist for over 30 years and keeps up-to-date with regular ongoing training. Over the last 10+ years we have looked after thousands of customer's eyes.
During your eye exam, we will check for early signs of eye conditions to reduce the risk of irreversible vision loss such as cataracts, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and some forms of cancer. We also check for general health issues such as diabetes, high cholesterol and hypertension (high blood pressure) which can cause a stroke.
More Frequent Exams
Some people may need to have more frequent examinations depending on age and medical history. If you are over 40 years old and in an at-risk group, such as having a close family member with an hereditary eye condition like glaucoma, you should have an eye exam every year. This is also the case for diabetics, children and people over 70 years.
We will recommend how regularly you need to have eye checks.
