Caring for your sight means getting eye exams, updating your lens prescriptions when necessary, and making sure that you”re always wearing the lenses you”re given by your doctor as recommended.

If, on the other hand, you have enjoyed good vision in the past, you may not be familiar with how to take the best care of your eye sight. When you think you notice a change in your sight, it”s possible to give yourself a preliminary eye test thanks to a number of iOS apps available for iPhone, iPod, and iPad.
