The International Glaucoma Association has highlighted these facts:

•    Glaucoma affects over 64 million people worldwide
•    In the UK it is found in 2% of the population over 40
•    They estimate over 300,000 in the UK remain undiagnosed

That’s 300,000 people that are unaware they are slowly losing their sight.  It is further estimated that 14 million people in the UK do not have their eyes tested every two years as recommended.  

It simply makes sense to have your eyes tested – especially men.  Particularly susceptible are those who have a family history of glaucoma.

Give me a call on 01452 410494 today and we will arrange a suitable time for an eye test.

We are now open and ready to see you once again …
