A Bridgend woman is thanking her optician after signs of a serious health condition were picked up during a sight test.
No previous concern
Irene Thomas, 65, visited her local Specsavers after experiencing chronic headaches, visual disturbances and feeling fatigued. Her visit came just three months after her routine sight test at Specsavers, at which time there was no concern about the health of her eyes.
The mother-of-two was examined by Tracey Seary, on two separate occasions following her symptoms, who referred her to the Princess of Wales Hospital.
