The importance of regular eye check ups
At National Pharmacy Malta, we place great emphasis on regular eye check-ups, as they are a fundamental part of maintaining good eye health. Without regular eye examinations, it can be difficult to detect any issues or diseases that may be present in our eyes. With early detection, these conditions can be treated more effectively, reducing the risk of developing more serious conditions such as glaucoma and cataracts.
Regular eye check-ups also provide a better understanding of any existing conditions, helping to manage them more effectively. For example, a comprehensive eye exam can detect the presence of any refractive errors such as nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. This in turn can help to determine the most suitable type of corrective lenses for the patient and reduce the risk of any associated complications.
The importance of regular eye check-ups also extends to children. Eye examinations are a great way of ensuring that children’s vision is developing as it should be. In some cases, any issues can be detected early, helping to reduce the risk of vision loss, as well as learning difficulties that may be associated with eye conditions.
