There are a number of different reasons why people in Edinburgh should have a regular eye test carried out. There are three main reasons why you should go for a regular eye test. Firstly your prescription needs to be checked on a regular basis to make sure that your vision is the best that it can possibly be. Headaches and general fatigue can be caused by changes in your prescription. If you are someone who spends more than two hours on a computer each day then there is a high chance that you might develop symptoms such as headaches, focusing difficulties, burning eyes, tired eyes, eyestrain, aching eyes, dry eyes, double vision, blurred vision, light sensitivity and neck and shoulder pains. All of the above symptoms can be treated with eyeglasses that are specifically made for computer users.
Secondly there are a number of serious eye diseases that people in Edinburgh have a high chance of getting. A number of these serious eye diseases often have no symptoms. Glucoma is an eye disease that causes vision loss, 50% of the damage could have occurred in the eye before it presents the person with symptoms. A number of other conditions could develop for example macular degeneration or cataracts, these are conditions that can develop without the person realising that their vision has decreased. There is also a condition called diabetic retinopathy that can develop within diabetic patients. By coming to us for an eye test you will be able to have an early detection of these and other eye diseases. This is important to maintain healthy vision.
Lastly uncorrected vision problems in children can cause learning and reading difficulties or contribute to a variety of other medical problems for example dyslexia or visual stress. Uncorrected vision in children can cause a number of other conditions for example amblyopia or strabismus. These can cause permanent vision loss if they are not treated in early life.
