The importance of eye exams

Feel Good Contact Lenses want you to know the importance of eye exams, and why they should be a regular fixture in your calendar.

The Feel Good Team understand the importance of eyes, and are dedicated to looking after the eyes of our valued customers and readers. One of the most essential things that you need to do to ensure the health and safety of your eyes is to go for regular eye exams. 

Here are just a few of the reasons why we suggest paying regular visits to your optician:

Eye exams can tell if you need contact lenses

The need for visual correctness is something that should be addressed as soon as possible. A large number of people have problems with focusing on small text or far-away objects and, as such, require contact lenses. By going in for an eye test, your optician will be able to determine whether your eyes are in need of contact lenses. The optician will also be able to tell you if you require lenses to correct myopia, presbyopia, astigmatism or a number of other eye-related issues.  

Serious eye-related issues can be detected early on

Unfortunately, a number of problems can affect our eyes, particularly as we grow older. However, the earlier that an issue is addressed, the better chance we have of keeping our eyes safe. Diabetes, macular degeneration and glaucoma are just some of the conditions that pose a threat to vision and eye health. Regular eye tests help to provide you with the most accurate prescription, protecting your eyes and your vision as best as possible. 


Your level of vision can be monitored over time

Your vision changes as you age, and should be checked regularly to ensure that the prescription provided to you is the correct one for your visual requirements. This is also ideal so that your optician can monitor how your vision is performing over time and, by inspecting the area around your eyes as well, whether you have injured your eyes or developed any issues.

You won’t ever buy the wrong prescription 

While your eyes will not be harmed by wearing contact lenses with an incorrect prescription, financially it actually makes much more sense to go for regular eye tests. If your visual requirements aren’t consistently specified, you could be purchasing the incorrect contact lenses for your needs. This would result in you throwing money away on something that you don’t quite need, before having to spend money again on the correct lenses. 

For any questions you have regarding contact lenses and eyes, our helpful customer service team are based in-house and are happy to assist.
