Your eyes should last you a lifetime, but they can sometimes be affected by conditions you were born with or which develop with age. You can help to keep your eyes healthy by not smoking, and eating lots of green, leafy vegetables.
You should have your eyes examined regularly, not only to test your sight, but also to check your eye health, so that if you do develop a condition, it can be caught and treated early.
Eye or sight problems can occur at any time, but you are more likely to develop problems if you are over 40, because conditions such as glaucoma, macular degeneration and cataracts are all more frequent in older people.
Our OCT 3D Retinal Scanner can show up many serious eye conditions at an early stage, ensuring quick diagnosis and treatment where possible – this scan is recommended once every 2 years.
Common Eye Complaints:
- Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
- Floaters & Flashes
