Excitement builds for National Eye Health Week

The National Eye Health Week campaign spreads the word on its new daily themes ahead of the September campaign. Lucy Patchett reports

Eye Health UK has announced its annual National Eye Health Week (NEHW) campaign, held in September 18-24, with a different focus for each day.  

Daily themes included NHS eye care and support, myopia education, digital eye care, mental health, lifestyle influences on eye health, a photographic competition, and smoking and sight loss. 

David Cartwright, chair of Eye Health UK, said: ‘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.
