See an optometrist

Ensure that you keep up with your eye check-ups. People who wear contact lenses or glasses may have to see their optometrist more regularly than those who are just going for a general check-up. Similarly, if you are ageing, have risk factors for certain eye conditions or are concerned about some aspect of your eye health, book an eye appointment for yourself.

Note that children also need to have regular eye exams. If they are experiencing problems with their vision, it can interfere with learning.
