Having regular eye checks is not just about your sight - but your health in general.
By examining your eyes our optometrists can detect a whole range of different health problems:
- High blood cholesterol, which can lead to heart disease, stroke and heart attack
- High blood pressure leading to similar problems
- Thyroid disease
- Neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis
- Diabetes - almost 2 million people are affected by diabetes in the UK and possibly 1 million more may have the condition without realising it
