Why do you need an eye checkup even if you feel your eyes are fine?

Your eyes are wonders of nature giving you the gift of sight. They are made of the transparent cornea and lens which focus light, the retina which perceives light, and the optic nerve which connects your eye to the brain so that you can see. Besides this, there are vascular tissues and circulating fluid that give nourishment to the tissues. We can look at all these parts of the eye when we do an eye check-up.

There are silent diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration which do not cause any complaints in the early stages but can cause a loss of sight if detected too late. You may have heard of your relatives who went blind in their old age. An eye check-up can pick up these problems in the early stage so that we can help you preserve your sight well into old age.

This is how we do a COMPREHENSIVE EYE CHECK-UP at OCULUS.
