Why get my eyes examined? I can see okay and nothing hurts.
Regular eye examinations by a qualified eyecare professional are important because your eyes don’t hurt when something is wrong. An eye examination is a vital health check for your eyes that can pick up early signs of eye conditions before you’re aware of any symptoms-many of which can be successfully treated if found early enough. Some health conditions that affect your eyes are diabetes, glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts.
