Why do you need to get your eyes tested?
It’s extremely important to get your eyes checked regularly even if you don’t think anything is wrong. An eye test can easily detect dangerous decreases in very early stages, like glaucoma (one of the most common causes of blindness) general eye diseases, diabetes or high blood pressure.
If you want to get a good idea of the condition of your eyes you need to get an actual eye exam performed by a professional. Often I see these “free eye test” offers in optics and eyewear shops, but those quite far from the real eye test when it comes to accuracy of the results. Those vision screenings are very ineffective when it comes to detecting small abnormalities or changes in vision. It could only show some major issue, that you are probably already aware of. The only way to actually detect eye diseases and prevent them is by performing an exam carried out by a licensed eye doctor.
Getting my eyes tested
This was the first time I have done it since a looong long time. I remember when I was a kid it was required by the school to get your eyes tested when you enroll in first grade, but I honestly don’t think I have checked them ever since.
My concerns for the health of my eyes came from the fact that there is a weak gene in my family when it comes to vision. Both my mom, sister, and grandma need to wear glasses. On top of that, I am in front of the screen for at least 8h a day :X.
I was so grateful and relieved to hear that my eyes are alright (for the time being)! My health means a lot to me, and every time I start taking it for granted I feel so horribly guilty. So I really like doing things for my health from time to time to balance things out.

The eye test is performed by a doctor and takes about 15 mins :). You get your results right after.
The glasses I am wearing are with a “fashion” lens as I don’t need any correction and the frame is called “JEG”. It’s a very light metallic frame and really comfortable to wear. You can find it HERE.
