A sight test includes a general health check that can pick up early signs of eye disease before you’re aware of any symptoms.
Penzer Opticians only employs experienced and knowledgeable opticians, who have been with us for many years.
As well as checking the health of your eyes, they can also spot other health related issues that the eyes reveal. These include high cholesterol levels, high blood glucose levels and high blood pressure.
By simply looking into the health of the blood vessels in the eye, these and other non ocular conditions can be discovered.
Penzer Opticians eye care will pick up eye health conditions
Diabetes is a long-term condition caused by too much glucose (sugar) in the blood. In the UK, approximately 2.9 million people are affected by diabetes. There are also thought to be around 850,000 people with undiagnosed diabetes.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a painless eye condition that leads to the gradual loss of central vision. Central vision is used to see what is directly in front of you, during activities such as reading or watching television for example.
Glaucoma often affects both eyes, usually in varying degrees. Glaucoma occurs when the drainage tubes (trabecular meshwork) within the eye become slightly blocked. This prevents eye fluid (aqueous humour) from draining properly. This can damage the optic nerve.
Your eyes are precious to you and they are precious to us too. You only have one pair! An eye care test costs just £25 (inc VAT). Let Penzer Opticians take care of your eye care needs and look after them. Check out our Special Offers this month and see what great value Penzers has to offer!
