Do You See What I See? eye health initiative

Do You See What I See? eye health initiative 12 Dec, 2017

Been a while since your last eye exam? Don’t forget, getting an eye test is about more than just needing glasses; it’s also about identifying the early signs of eye disease.

 

If you’re over the age of 50 you’re at increased risk of vision loss, which is why we’re calling on those aged over 50 to have a regular eye test, as the early detection of eye disease provides the best chance of saving your sight.

 

This summer EyeQ Optometrists is partnering with Bayer Australia and the Macular Disease Foundation Australia to help improve the eye health of those over the age of 50.

 

The Do You See What I See? initiative aims to increase understanding and awareness of eye health and that early signs of eye disease aren’t always clear.

 

Book your next eye test today and check out more information on the initiative on the EyeQ website: http://www.eyeq.com.au/do-you-see-what-i-see-2/
