1. You only have one pair of eyes.  Once lost,     eyesight cannot be replaced.

2. Unlike your teeth, your eyes do not usually     hurt when something is wrong.

3. The eye examination can detect early signs     of potentially blinding eye conditions so they     can be treated.

4. The earlier a problem is detected the     greater the chance of successful treatment.     This is particularly true for young children     and the elderly.

5. The eye examination can detect health     problems such as high blood pressure,     diabetes and brain tumours.

6. An eye examination checks if your eyesight     needs correcting with spectacles.

7. Good quality vision means working and     playing better and safer - in fact it means a     better quality of life.

8. For young people, good eyesight is vital to     learning. An eye examination can detect     vision problems which may affect school     performance.

9. Failing eyesight is often taken for granted     as people get older, however by having an     eye examination and remedying problems in     eyesight, older people can improve their     quality of life significantly.

10. Poor eyesight is dangerous. Are you sure       you reach the legal requirements for      driving?
