National Eye Health Week
National Eye Health Week is back, and we’re on a mission. This years’ theme is about the importance of eye health and the need for regular sight tests for all. We want people to know how important it is to look after their eyes and the need to have them checked regularly.
We will be promoting the importance of looking after your eyes throughout the week at The Clock Tower, Humberstone Gate, Leicester, from Monday the 23th to Friday 27th, 10am – 4pm.
You will have the opportunity to have your eyes screened on mobile support service for free. You can also try out a pair of our simulation goggles to better understand different eye conditions and how they limit your vision.
Over 50% of sight loss is due to treatable or preventable causes. A sight test is not just about checking your vision, they are also vital checks for various health conditions. If a problem is spotted early, conditions can be treated successfully to avoid potential sight loss. Whilst not a substitute for a full eye test, our eye screenings take users through a series of simple exercises to see if there may be an issue with a person’s sight.
We shall be by the Clock Tower, Humberstone Gate, Leicester. LE1 5YA
