The Great NZ Eye Test

Take this simple yes or no test to find out if you or someone in your family should have an eye examination. If you answer “yes” to more than one question, or you have not seen your optometrist in over a year, it’s probably time to schedule an appointment. Particular eye and vision conditions exist for the over 40s, and children. This test serves as a quick overview for everyone.

Do you experience:                                                             Yes    No
Difficulty reading small print or seeing to do crafts                 
Headaches or have tired, burning eyes after reading or
working on a computer
Difficulty seeing at night or seeing street signs while driving
Irritated, dry, red or sensitive eyes
Spots, flashes of light, or floaters in your field of vision

Do you:                                                                              Yes    No
Have diabetes
Have a family history of glaucoma
Attend school and have difficulty in reading
Have a family history of lazy eye, weak vision, or sight loss
Handle chemicals, use power tools, or engage in sports that
may be hazardous to your eyes

Even if you answered “no” to these questions, keep in mind that symptoms of eye disease and vision problems are not always apparent. See your NZAO optometrist for an eye exam to make sure that your eyes are healthy and functioning properly.
