National Eye Health Week 2017

Midland Eye will be returning to the Touchwood Centre on 22nd September to give informed advice to local shoppers to mark National Eye Health Week (18 – 24 September).

The Week aims to raise awareness of the importance of having a regular sight test and inspire people to make healthier lifestyle choices that benefit their eye health.


Almost two million people in the UK are living with sight loss yet over half of sight loss can be avoided so it is vital everyone takes care of their eyes. By coming along to our National Eye Health Week event you can find out how you can keep your eyes and vision healthy”.


David Cartwright, Chair of National Eye Health Week said: “Sight is the sense people fear losing the most, yet many of us don’t know the best way to look after our eyes. This is why it is so important you get your eyes checked every two years even if you think your vision is fine as some eye  conditions may not show symptoms.

Come along to Touchwood on Friday 22nd to ask the team any questions about your health, we look forward to seeing you there.
