Specsavers Optometrist Karen Walsh describes some of the conditions that can show up in an eye health check.
Diabetes can affect small blood vessels in the eye, damaging the retina, which is vital for sight. An eye health check can detect changes to the retina caused by diabetes before you notice any changes to your vision – this includes early characteristic changes, such as tiny leaks from damaged blood vessels.
As the information above indicates, eye health checks are an essential part of maintaining your overall health.
