Eye Examinations are Crucial to your Health

Booking your eye test is the first step towards understanding your eye care requirements. An examination takes approximately 30 minutes and can make lasting changes to your quality of life.

Regular eye examinations are important in order to detect a number of possible underlying health problems such as diabetes and raised blood pressure. No matter what age you are or how good your eyes feel, at Williams and Parry Ltd we strongly recommend that you have your vision checked at least once every two years, unless specifically instructed otherwise.
