World Glaucoma Week – 3 ways to prioritise eye care

Published on 12th March 2020 in General

It’s World Glaucoma Week and here at Vista, we want to raise awareness of the importance of regular eye tests to eliminate avoidable sight loss.

Here are 3 ways to prioritise eye care:

1.   Visit an optician. Never ignore any changes in your eyesight. We recommend going to the optician once every two years. This ensures that you will become aware of any changes in your eyesight.

2.   Quit smoking and take regular exercise. It is important to take steps to keep your eyes healthy.

3. Learn about different eye conditions. For example, glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible blindness in the world. It can be spotted through a simple eye test.
