It’s essential to look after your eyes and our Optometrists, Contact Lens Opticians and branch staff are all on hand to help you make sure they stay healthy. Getting your eyes checked on a regular basis is key. For most people this will be once every two years, but your Optometrist will decide how often you need to be seen based on a number of factors including your age and any family history of eye problems.
At Scrivens, we can offer you friendly and professional advice in regards to your eyecare, as well as guidance about what glasses to choose and the eye test process. If you are noticing an unusual change in your eyesight, whether that’s difficulty reading or the reoccurrence of headaches, it may be time to get an eye check.
Our team are also committed to ensuring children the best possible eyecare as they grown up. A child’s eyesight is constantly evolving every day and therefore it’s important to visit your opticians regularly in order to monitor eye health. Call into your local Scrivens Opticians branch today and talk to an expert.
