A Penwortham-based charity is supporting National Eye Health Week this week by launching its campaign urging people to ‘Look After Your Eyes’.
Galloway’s Society for the Blind is taking to the streets with a simple message aimed at preventing sight loss – book an eye test.
Stuart Clayton, chief executive of Galloway’s said: “Over 50 per cent of sight loss could be prevented and we are urging everyone to make sure they have regular eye tests.
“Many people think that an eye test is just about checking whether your vision needs correcting but there are other important reasons to have a regular eye test. It is a vital check on the health of the eyes and includes the detection of eye conditions. Many of these, if found early, can be treated successfully, avoiding potential sight loss.
