A healthy New Year’s resolution for your eyes
If you have yet to make a New Year’s resolution, what could be more important than resolving to take better care of yourself?
Most of us consider having New Year resolutions. These can include health improvements such as giving up smoking, losing weight or drinking less and often require subtracting something from a routine.
One easy resolution to add which could make a big difference is to schedule an eye test for you and your family. An eye test not only enables you to maximise your vision, but it also provides a vital health check.
Raised blood pressure and cholesterol, diabetes and thyroid problems are just a few of the conditions that can manifest themselves in the eyes; in addition to more specific problems such as cataracts and glaucoma. Thankfully most people’s eyes are healthy even if they do need glasses.
Many people are exempt from the cost of having an eye test as they qualify for NHS help.
For those unable to attend the practice unaccompanied we offer a full domiciliary service where both the eye test and dispensing facility can be conducted in the comfort and privacy of a home setting.
So why not make a resolution to have an eye test at Douglas & Cobane Opticians that you will benefit from the whole year round?
