Now that we are half way through 2015, the team at Specsavers in Brixton are promoting the importance of regular sight tests to ensure their health is being taken care of.

Numerous benefits

Eye tests can do more than just help to improve your sight; they can help detect serious illness including glaucoma, cataracts and even diabetes which can all lead to serious eye conditons, even blindness, if left untreated.

Keeping fit and healthy

Brixton store director, Brian Simpson said: ‘Everyone at the Brixton store want people to know how important eye tests are for their health. In the UK, over three million people are affected by diabetes. However, 90 per cent of cases of blindness can be prohibited if signs are detected early enough by an eye test.’
