Eye Conditions

Why should I get my eyes tested?

There are a number of common eye conditions that can be easily identified and corrected by visiting your optician. From Presbyopia (being unable to clearly see close objects or small print) that occurs naturally as we age, to more serious problems such as glucoma, cataracts and retinal disorders, it's worth taking your eye health seriously.
