If my vision's fine, do I need a regular eye test?
Yes. An eye test includes a comprehensive check of the front and back of the eyes to assess your eye health as well as a vision assessment.
Even if you aren’t experiencing any problems with your vision or eyes it's still worth having a regular check-up as most eye conditions don’t have symptoms in their early stages. Eyes can be affected by a number of conditions which can be picked up early through an eye test, and early detection of most eye conditions is crucial to help prevent vision loss.
People under 65 should have an eye test every two years or more regularly if advised by your optometrist, while people over 65 should have an eye test every year.
