Regular eye tests are important because we often do not recognise, or ignore, the signs when something is wrong. Eye tests provide a vital health check for your eyes and your general well-being. An eye test can often identify eye diseases such as glaucoma (the second most common cause of blindness) which can be prevented. It can also spot diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure.
It is recommended that you get your eyes testing every two years, although if you suffer from any of the conditions above you may benefit from more frequent sights tests.
The cost of an eye test at Jean Rigby Opticians is £25.00.
Am I entitled to a FREE eye test?
There are a number of criteria that may entitle you to a free eye test based on age, existing eye conditions, family history of eye conditions and if you are in receipt of certain benefits.
