Why are eye tests so vital?

Our eyes are easy for us to neglect, and we typically think of them when something is wrong. A lot of eye conditions do not show any symptoms or signs in the early stages. Sometimes when we do notice a problem, it may be too late to reverse the damage done and difficult to prevent future damage. Eye Tests are vital for all ages and not only tell us if you need new glasses or a change in your prescription, but will check the health of your eyes.
