National Eye Health Week

This Assembly:

  • Recognises the Seventh Annual National Eye Health Week in the UK and Wales
  • Calls on all Assembly Members to urge constituents to book a sight test


    Notes that: 

     
  • 50% of all sight loss is avoidable
  • 1 in 10 people do not have a regular sight test
  • Everyone should have their eyes tested every two years, or every year if there is family history of glaucoma
  • NHS eye tests are free for people aged 60+
  • Sight tests can lead to early detection and treatment of eye conditions and prevent avoidable sight loss
