Free Virtual Awareness Sessions for Eye Health Week

Did you know?

  • 2 million people in the UK are living with sight loss that is severe enough to have a significant impact on their daily lives. Half of this sight loss is avoidable
  • A sight test can detect early signs of conditions like glaucoma, which can be treated if found early enough
  • During a sight test, other conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure may be detected
  • For healthy eyes, eat well, don’t smoke and wear eye protection in bright sunlight

To mark National Eye Health Week, 21st – 27th September 2020, Sight Cymru would like to invite you to take part in three virtual awareness sessions.

Monday 21st September, 11am – ‘All about age related macular degeneration and cataracts’

Tuesday 22nd September, 11am – ‘All about glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and Charles Bonnet Syndrome’

Come and find out all there is to know about these eye conditions, the risk factors and how to ensure good eye health.

Wednesday 23rd September, 11am – ‘Your experience of Covid-19, lockdown and sight loss’

We would love to hear how the current situation is affecting people with sight loss. If you have sight loss and would like to share your experiences of how Covid-19 and lockdown has affected you, we would love you to join us on Wednesday 23rd September.
