Taking care of your  EYE’s:  is just as important as taking care of your body, mind, and soul

While we take care of ourselves and our kids and go to the general practitioner (GP) or dentist for regular check-ups, we sometimes tend to overlook our eyes –  and optical health, our window to our soul.

Here are 5 reasons why you should visit your optometrist at Douglas & Hardy Optometrists:

  • ‘Difficult’ to see. During a routine eye test, your optometrist does not just examine the quality and quantity (referred to as a patient’s visual acuity) of your vision and whether you need visual aids or glasses. Your eye test at D & H will include an overall eye-health consultation for any injury and or early detection of most visual impairing eye conditions – eg: corneal affected disorder, cataracts, glaucoma and retinal conditions. In cases where our patients need specialist surgical care, we will work closely as a team of eye care professionals with you as to restore your vision to your personal and optimal best. Optometrists are often the first to detect chronic conditions like high blood pressure and or diabetes just by looking into your eyes.
  • ‘Our Children’ learning to see. Eye examinations are just as important for our kids as they and eye exam is for you are for you as an adult. Research has shown that vision is closely linked to the learning process at school and in general, Kids with undetected vision problems will struggle at school.  Because your child doesn’t know what ‘normal’ vision is, they may not complain about vision problems. We at Douglas & Hardy can assist by early detection of vision problems in kids and with minimal intervention in most cases assist your child to develop optimally.
  • Low Vision’ Young and Old. This condition is not age specific or gender specific, we at Douglas & Hardy have a team that is passionate to assist you, our patient with professional advice, care and to equip you with not only identifying low vision but also with techniques and visual aids that will assist you with your day to day tasks.
  • ‘Do we have a known’ eye sight impairing condition. We at Douglas & Hardy hope you all know that we all should visit an optometrist every two years, however, you need to go more often when you’re over 40, have diabetes, or there’s a family history of glaucoma or a noticeable drop in your vision.
  • ‘Your lifestyle’ Working in front of a computer screen for too long can cause eye -strain, blurry vision, dry eyes, and headaches.  Ask your optometrist at Douglas & Hardy if you need a prescription lens that helps with contrast or glare or if you work outdoors and or is a professional sport athlete,  a pair prescription sunglasses are also a good idea to give you optimal protection against the sun’s ultra violet rays.

Remember a basic vision screening, like those done when you renew your driving license or by a school nurse, is no substitute for a professional eye exam with your optometrist at Douglas & Hardy Optometrists. Our commitment is : 

“If we cannot help you to improve your visual equity at Douglas & Hardy optometrists our team of professionals will find you someone who can”
