Our eyes are one of our most integral organs for living a rewarding life. That’s why they need the regular attention of an optometrist. Seeing the same optometrist over time for all your eye health and eyecare needs means even minor changes in your vision can be monitored. A regular eye test could save your sight.
Don’t be blind to the risks
Did you know that 75% of vision loss can be prevented or treated with early detection?^ And although many people will wait until their eye sight deteriorates before having their eyes checked, many eye disease symptoms are invisible.
We urge you not to wait until you notice a deterioration. While we know that 1 million Australians have never had an eye examination, we also know that 50% of participants in a recent NEHS survey discovered an eye condition that they were unaware of prior to the survey.
Prevention is better than cure
The reality is that eye disease and changes to your vision can occur at any age. The best safeguard against avoidable vision loss and blindness are comprehensive eye examinations, and thankfully, this is what our optometrists do best. Our optometrists take the time to understand your general health, eye health and vision needs to offer you a holistic eyecare plan.
Because we understand that seeing well means living well.
Don’t miss the big moments in your life.
