Taking Care Of Eyes This Halloween

The College of Optometrists advises the  public to protect their eyes this Halloween

According to their research, 63% of those who plan to dress up as part of Halloween celebrations consider wearing cosmetic contact lenses. But only 27% of people would buy novelty lenses from their optometrist. This is despite it being illegal to sell contact lenses with no prescription in the UK without the supervision of a registered optometrist, dispensing optician or doctor.​​​​​​​

Glaucoma Awareness Week 2022

Glaucoma Awareness Week takes place from 27 June – 3 July 2022. This year’s campaign is called ‘Put your sight in the spotlight’ and calls for people to book an eye test.
