Vision Matters Photographic Competition & Exhibition – building on growing evidence of the effectiveness of the arts in influencing the adoption of health enhancing behaviours.
Smoking & Sight Loss.
David Cartwright, Chair of Eye Health UK comments:
These themes targeting audiences with diverse eye care needs will help set a prevention agenda that is essential in order to curtail avoidable sight loss and improve the nation’s eye health. I would encourage optical practices to get involved and to make use of the materials available. This will enhance the profile of a practice and help to educate the public on the importance of looking after their eye health and regular sight tests”
