Eye test ignorance widespread…(except at CO)

Posted on 24th July 2012

Bausch & Lomb (a contact lens manufacturer) has released some details about people’s attitude to eye examinations which makes quite sad reading if you’re an optometrist.

63% of people in the survery think that, because they don’t have any symptoms, there is no need to get their eyes tested, while one in three believe that if they can see, their eyesight is fine and another one in three haven’t ever had an eye exam or not for at least 3 years.

Woe is me

Fortunately our patients are of a far superior calibre and know very well that eye exams at CamOpt can reveal all sorts of things not only about your eyes but your general health. Diabetes, high blood pressure, other circulation problems, minor strokes (TIAs), many neurological conditions and much more can all be picked up first in the eye. It’s never nice to consider all these things and there is a temptation to think that ignorance is bliss but it’s always better to find these things and the earlier you find them the better for treating them.

So our advanced equipment and unparalleled clinical experience means not only will we check for cataracts, macular degeneration, glaucoma and 1000s of other eye conditions, we’ll also give your eyes a thorough examination for these other problems and help you get treatment faster when you need it.
