It is recommended to have an eye examination at least every 2 years (or sooner) to assess vision and eye health.
Most eye conditions have little or no symptoms. Systemic diseases such as hypertension and diabetes can damage the circulation in the eye.
Environmental conditions such as computer use, UV exposure and smoking can all play a role in affecting the eyes and visual system.
Prescription medications can cause side effects or discomfort to the eyes thus requiring regular monitoring.
