It’s not just about seeing: just by looking at your eyes, your optician can detect the signs of over 270 conditions⁴. And, with 90 percent of visual impairments being treatable or preventable if detected in time³, why risk missing out on all those experiences you deserve to see clearly?
What we see determines 80 percent of our memories², so a sunset, a first step, a first job, and a first grandchild - they’re all made even better if your eyes are in great shape when they happen. All of this starts from a simple eye test, and then another when recommended by your optician.
It’s more than having a problem or needing a prescription. It’s about detecting potential trouble through regular evaluations and tests before symptoms appear.
