Even after being told – following an extensive range of eye tests… Read more

Last year, National Eye Health Week reminded us all of the importance of regular eye tests. It’s recommended we have our eyes examined at least every two years, not only to ensure they’re healthy, but also to check for changes to our current prescriptions. Health organisations advised that some of us are more likely than others to experience eye conditions, including those aged over 40, of African Caribbean origin or with a close family member that suffers with glaucoma. Worrying, such conditions… Read more
