The health of your eyes is something that is super important but that can often be easily neglected. So, we thought we’d share just a few of the reasons why you should book an eye test as soon as you can.

As a retailer of contact lenses and other eye care products, we understand the important role that our eyes play for us on a day-to-day basis, and we truly believe in the significance of maintaining their health. That’s why at Feel Good Contacts, we strongly advise you to take care of your eyes by getting them regularly checked out by a licensed optician.

Here are our reasons why:


An eye test can tell if you’re in need of contact lenses

Eye tests are designed to inspect the front and back of your eye, as well as its visual acuity.

It’s very important to pick up on any eye problems that you may have as soon as possible. If you’re having difficulty focusing on small text, or if you’ve found your eyesight becoming slightly more blurred, then we highly recommend that you pay a visit to your local optician.

Opticians recommend that you have an eye test at least every two years. With an eye test, the optician can then find out if presbyopia, myopia, astigmatism or a number of other vision-related conditions have developed. And, in the event that they have, they’ll then be able to give you a prescription for glasses or contact lenses.


Sometimes, more serious health problems can be picked up on

Getting an eye test is an essential part of maintaining your overall health. It goes without saying that we hope you are, and always will be, in the best of health. Sadly, however, sometimes our bodies can let us down.

Glaucoma, macular degeneration and diabetes are some of the unfortunate conditions that can afflict us in our lives and can have a direct consequence on our eyes and our vision.

Having your eyes regularly checked can make sure that your optician can diagnose any of these conditions as early on as possible and can supply you with the correct prescription needed to keep your eyes safe.

You can monitor your level of vision over time

If you regularly have your eyes checked out by an optician, your level of vision can be noted each time and can be held in comparison to your earlier tests.

This is a very effective way to monitor how your eyes are performing over time and to notice any deterioration in your vision or change in prescription.

In addition, the area around your eyes will be inspected every time you go in for a check-up and can give some indication whether you have developed any injuries, abnormalities or other conditions in between visits.

 

Make sure you’re wearing the right prescription

Contrary to popular belief, your vision will not be negatively affected if you wear the incorrect prescription of contact lenses, however, it can still put your eyes under strain and leave you with a headache.

For that reason, we recommend you attend regular eye tests in order to be given the most accurate prescription of contact lenses as your visual requirements change over time.

In addition, we understand the need to be supplied with the correct contact lenses when it’s an expenditure that you are making every month. So, play it safe for your wallet’s sake and make sure you attend regular eye tests.  

 

If you have any questions regarding eye exams, or indeed anything related to eye health and contact lenses in general, don’t hesitate to contact our highly knowledgeable and friendly Feel Good Contacts customer service team.
