We all depend on our vision in more ways than we realise. Without healthy vision our abilities are drastically affected. Many factors can affect our eyesight including health factors such as High blood pressure and diabetes.

Having family history of eye disease can make you more prone to having the condition as well. Sight stealing eye disease can occur at any time. Very often they are unnoticeable at first and are difficult to detect.

An ophthalmologist is a medical doctor who specialises in diseases of the eye.
They are licenced to practice medicine and surgery and diagnoses and treats all eye diseases.

Everyone should have an eye exam. How often depends on your age, health or ongoing eye problems.

The cost of a routine eye examination especially for diabetics/cataracts are covered as part of PMB conditions on most medical aids and will therefore not affect your medical aid savings.

NB: Blinding conditions such as glaucoma can only be detected on eye examinations as they do not present with any symptoms.

Or for any other problems relating to your eyes contact Dr L Naidoo at Tongaat Eye Centre on 032 945 0007.
