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.
