Did you know that what you eat and how much you move can affect your eye health? Interestingly, eyes need good blood circulation and oxygen intake to remain healthy, and both are stimulated by regular exercise.
As well remember to use sun safety and protective eyewear when enjoying sports and recreation. Unfortunately the risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration all increase as we age. Frighteningly, both glaucoma and macular degeneration sometimes show no visible symptoms in the early stages while permanent damage is occurring.
EyeQ Optometrists are fortunate to have state-of-the-art testing technology to assist with the early detection of these silent dangers. These tests are easy to arrange, quick to perform, and give great peace of mind – if you are over 40 and overdue we recommend you book an eye examination today.
Our contact lens provider Alcon is experiencing delays fulfilling orders due to a cyber-security incident involving their freight partner, Toll Group. These delays are across their entire network of optical retailers in Australia. We apologise for an inconvenience caused and encourage you to contact your local EyeQ practice for any urgent requirements.
