Looking After Your Eyes
An eye examination is an important part of looking after your eyes, but it’s more than a simple test of your sight. Your optometrist is able to check out other general health issues during an eye examination and give advice. An eye examination should be part of everyone’s normal health routine.
The NHS has launched a new free eye care service for people with minor eye conditions. Instead of waiting for a GP appointment or attending A&E, you can now make an appointment with your local PEARS qualified optician and be seen within one or two working days. Below are some conditions covered by the scheme and some more information on that condition.
