Do you have perfect vision? Optometrist explains why it's important to look after your eye health

Eyesight is such an important part of our lives and something we should protect. 

World Sight Day is on October 14 and it's a great reminder to book that eye test and look after your eye health. Our eyes can also indicate signs of more problematic issues such as diabetes and high blood pressure, which are not always obvious.

That's why regular eye tests are an essential part of maintaining your health and it's recommended that everyone goes for a test every two years. However, if you notice a change in your vision, you should get it checked out as soon as possible. 

Specsavers Optometrist Celeste Raisbeck explains why it's important to get your eyes tested and what it means to have 20/20 vision.
