At Optical Masters, we recommend you have an eye exam at least every two years, or more frequently if recommended by the eye doctor. With more than 100 different ways to test your eyes are working correctly, our doctors select the tests most appropriate for you.
Eye care is an essential part of any healthy lifestyle. Regular exercise, eating a balanced diet, watching your weight and making sure you have your eyes checked regularly doesn't just keep your vision in tip-top condition, but these measures can also help in the detection of long-term health issues such as diabetes, which can lead to permanent eye damage.
Familiarity with the symptoms of common eye conditions can help you to prevent an initially minor infection or problem from becoming a major health issue. Some eye conditions can be indicators of deeper, underlying health problems such as diabetes or high blood pressure, which with the right treatment can be managed or even eradicated.
The eye is an extraordinary and complex organ that allows us to 'see'. The brain actually does the 'seeing' - the eye is the 'central processor' that takes the information in the form of light waves and transmits the information into the brain.
