Expat Health Insurance News: Regular eye examinations 'beneficial'

Expatriate health insurance customers would do well to take advantage of their health cover and have regular eye examinations.

According to Tony Veverka, chief executive at Ultralase, problems like diabetes and high blood pressure can be identified through these examinations, allowing for early treatment and a better chance of recovery.

He added that the average person should be "having an eye examination about every two to three years"; but noted that different lifestyle factors can impact eye health.

"With the increasing use of computers, it's a very good idea to take regular breaks from computer screen work, as the eyes can become dry and irritated," he said.

While outdoor life is beneficial to eye health because it regulates things like tear production.

Ultralase is celebrating its 20th anniversary as the first private company in the UK to offer laser eye surgery.
