Many Ottawa residents believe that they only need to see an optician when they notice a change in their vision. This however is not recommended, as it is just as important you see an optometrist just as you see your general practitioner. You wouldn’t put off seeing your doctor for your annual check-up, so why put off seeing an optician to have an eye test.
Vision problems are the most common reason why people have their eyes tested, as they start to notice little telltale signs that hint that their eyes are not what they used to be. Overtime, with age and strain vision problems can arise, causing more than just optical issues. An eye test performed by an optician will indicate whether or not corrective lenses are needed, a simple pair of glasses or contact lenses can truly make a world of a difference. Be sure to listen to your optometrist and follow all of their advice as they have your best health in mind.
You’ve probably heard your parents, friends or significant other tell you how important preventative health care is, but never considered having your eyes tested as part of the preventative health care plan. In realty a simple eye test can tell your optician a lot about your health, and can warn them that something more serious is going on. An eye test can show signs and symptoms of more underlying serious health issues such as diabetes, high blood pressure and glaucoma. By visiting your optician they are more likely to catch on to the early on-set symptoms of serious health issues, before your general practitioner does. It is important you take good care of your health, and by having your eyes tested in Orleans, you know you will receive the best eye care.
You may have noticed gradual or sudden vision changes that can be effecting your everyday life such as being unable to view details in the distance, or perhaps having difficulty reading the wash labels on your clothes. These are just simple vision changes, but they could also impact your safety. An example of this would be being unable to see the serious car accident up the road, or being unable to read a food label which may contain an ingredient you or a loved one is allergic to. To prevent these accidents from occurring you should have your eyes tested to make sure that your vision is where is should be, or to see if you require corrective lenses.
