We can offer eye examinations to anyone who is situated in Edinburgh. It is vital that you have a regular eye test carried out. Failure to do so could have negative long-lasting implications. By coming to us for our eye examinations we will be able to check your vision on a regular basis. Changes in your prescription can result in people having annoying headaches or general fatigue, if you are someone who is regularly on a computer for more than two hours a day then you might develop a number of symptoms for example headaches, focusing difficulties, burning eyes, tired eyes, eyestrain, aching eyes, dry eyes, double vision, blurred vision, light sensitivity and even neck and shoulder pains. We are able to offer eyeglasses that are made for computer users.
There are a number of serious eye diseases that have no symptoms. Glucoma is an eye disease that causes vision loss, up to 50% of the damage can occur in the eye before glucoma presents any symptoms at all. There are various other conditions that could occur if you are someone in Edinburgh who doesn’t go for regular eye examinations. For example macular degeneration or cataracts develop so gradually that you might not even realise that your vision has decreased. Diabetic retinopathy is another condition that there is a very high chance of getting if you are a diabetic patient. Early detection of these diseases is crucial for maintaining healthy vision.
Children in Edinburgh should also come to us for regular eye examinations. If you have a child and you haven’t had their eyes tested for a while then you should have them tested as soon as possible. This is due to uncorrected vision problems causing learning and reading difficulties. These uncorrected vision problems can also contribute to a number of other medical problems for example dyslexia and visual stress. Uncorrected vision in children can also cause amblyopia or strabismus. This could cause permanent vision loss if it isn’t treated whilst your child is young.
For those in Edinburgh who come to us for our eye examinations you can expect to receive an optician who is fully trained and experienced in providing these examinations. We have a number of different glasses and contact lenses available to those who might need them. These vary in price and style, meaning that there are options available that will suit what everyone needs. We have a number of glasses that are scratch-resistant and have anti-reflective coatings as well.
We have gained a reliable reputation over the years that we have been providing our examinations. This has meant that our patients have remained with us ever since and have referred others to our opticians.
