RNIB and Specsavers marked Eye Health Week with an interactive eye pod tour at Park Centre shopping centre. Primary 7 pupils from St Joseph’s Primary School, Slate Street came along for a special visit to find out more about good eye health and to meet Specsavers and RNIB staff.
Regular eye tests are so important
The unusual sight simulator, called the Eye Pod, educates the public about the importance of eye health and regular eye tests.
Four main eye conditions
Shoppers and centre visitors were able to experience how the four main eye conditions (Age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and cataracts) can affect your sight. They were also able to talk to experts from Specsavers Park Centre store and find out key facts and statistics about each condition.
