Prevention – Still The Best Cure

Question: “My eyesight is perfect, I am not squinting or straining to see and I think my eyes are healthy.

Aaah, the old “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it logic.”

Well, your eyes are actually different from say, a lawnmower. A machine will sputter, stall, spit, turn on a red light, or simply conk out, letting you know that something is wrong. Your eyes don’t always warn you of impeding danger.

Serious eye diseases such as glaucoma, retinal detachment, diabetic and hypertensive retinopathies, some brain tumours, multiple sclerosis among many other conditions, may or may not produce early enough warning signs for you to act in a timely manner.

Think prevention, and have your eyes examined well before they become diseased or lose precious sight.
