Getting an eye test every two years, or more often if you have been told to have one, is really vital to making sure that your eyes stay in tip top condition.

But that eye test could also help identify a number of other medical issues at an early stage – meaning you could get conditions like diabetes, arthritis and even high cholesterol treated more quickly.

A word from the store director

Badrinath Mohandas, store director in Uckfield, said: ‘A lot of people do not realise just how much we can tell about your general health by taking a look at your eyes. In rare cases, an eye test can sometimes even be lifesaving, not just sight saving.

‘So if you have not had a test for a while, why not book one at Specsavers Hailsham online today.’
