Here’s why regular eye check-ups matter
Have you had a comprehensive eye examination lately?
We’ll make a fuzzy guess that you haven’t, and statistics tell us that we’re most probably right. Research shows that less than half of all Singaporeans get their eyes tested regularly.
Close encounters of the contacts kind
This is especially common for heavy users of contact lenses. Leading manufacturer, Acuvue®, shares that many customers simply top up their contact lens supplies for years using the same prescription, not realizing that the product they’re wearing has long become outdated for their needs.
Even more people are unaware that contact lenses come in all manner of shapes, sizes, thicknesses, and materials. Just like shoes that are too small or too narrow, ill-fitting contact lenses will cause discomfort and reduced performance.
Many have opted not to wear contact lenses at all, believing that it is “just not for them”, while others who choose to bear with the seemingly minor discomfort run the increased risk of eventually developing eye conditions.
The future, however, isn’t dim, and the solution is crystal clear. These problems can be easily avoided, or at least minimised, with regularly scheduled eye checks. When conducted by professionals who are able to advise on differing optical needs, eye checks ensure that you know the most suitable eye products for your individual needs and comfort.
