National Eye Health Week
17th September 2019
National Eye Health Week (NEHW) takes place later this month, 23 to 29 September, with activities promoting eye health across the UK.
Did you know:
- 2 million people in the UK are living with sight loss, that is severe enough to have a significant impact on their daily lives. Half of this sight loss is avoidable*
- A sight test can detect early signs of conditions like glaucoma, which can be treated if found soon enough
- During a sight test, other health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure may be detected
- For healthy eyes, eat well, don’t smoke and wear eye protection in bright sunlight
