Eyes & Ears

Will my health insurance policy cover me for Eyes & Ears?

What are sight and hearing problems?

Sight and hearing are two of our most valuable senses. As we age it is normal to experience some reduction in vision, and many eye problems are minor and fleeting.

Similarly, gradual deterioration of the ears means that deafness is sometimes an unwelcome feature of later life. However, there are many other more common hearing problems which are easily treated.

How common are sight and hearing problems?

Sight and hearing problems are very common in people of all ages. Common eye problems include cataracts, retinal disorders and conjunctivitis. Common ear problems include ear wax, inflammation of the middle ear and tinnitus.

How can sight and hearing problems be prevented?

Your best defence for eye problems is to have regular check-ups, because eye diseases do not always have symptoms. You should also take regular breaks when using a computer to avoid eye strain, and eat a healthy diet with plenty of fresh fruit and leafy green vegetables.

To help prevent hearing problems you should keep your ears clean and try, and never poke anything into them, including cotton buds. Never ignore an ear problem, and consult your doctor if something feels wrong.

How are sight and hearing problems treated?

There are many different ways of treating sight and hearing problems depending on the severity of the condition. Treatments for eye conditions range from eye drops to laser eye surgery. Treatments for ear problems include antibiotic or olive oil drops, and ear irrigation.

To ensure full cover for all investigations choose a policy with full outpatient cover.

Proactive, efficient, and offered me insurance I need. I would say half price I would end up paying if I did it by myself. Many thanks.

Excellent service. Explained everything in detail and really helped to find the right insurance best suited to my needs - which wasn't necessarily the most expensive.
