The start of each year always brings new challenges, opportunities and responsibilities, which is why Specsavers in Brixton is promoting the importance of regular sight tests to ensure that health is being taken care of.

More than one benefit

Did you know that eye tests can do more than just help to improve your sight? They can detect everything from glaucoma to cataracts, and even diabetes which can all lead to 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 health, especially as people take health and fitness more seriously at the beginning of each year.’

Early signs of diabetes

Over 3 million people are affected by diabetes in the UK, and if signs are detected early enough by an eye test, 90% of cases of blindness can be prevented.
