Have you been procrastinating on getting that eye examination done? Perhaps you have been telling yourself that you’re quite busy at the moment and cannot spare the time to make an appointment. Well, we at Leightons Opticians have just made booking an eye appointment so much simpler! It’s as easy as online shopping and you can make an appointment with just a couple of clicks of the mouse.


Why take an Eye Test?

Vision-related problems can creep up on you, as eyesight deteriorates gradually in most cases. This is where regular eye tests will help in identifying any changes or trouble with your vision. Also, you may not even know that you have an eye condition, as the symptoms may be hardly noticeable. However, a computerized eye examination can pick up even the slightest anomalies and your optician can suggest appropriate corrective action. Eyesight deteriorates with age, though eye problems can also strike youngsters. Hence we recommend that you take an eye test every year, or every two years. Also check with your optician; you may be eligible for a free NHS eye test. Apart from eye-related problems, an eye test can also detect other life-threatening conditions such as heart ailments, diabetes, tumours and neurological disorders.
