Members of staff from Specsavers in Bridgnorth have recently visited The Bridgnorth Wellbeing Group to talk about the importance of eye health. 

Store director Teresa Hughes spoke to the group about cataracts and dry eyes and how these conditions can have an effect on overall eye health. 

Regular sight tests

‘It was a real pleasure to join the Wellbeing Group for their meeting and raise awareness of these conditions with its members,’ Teresa commented. ‘Cataracts particularly affect older people and can go unnoticed for a long time.’ 

‘We want to highlight that early action is important, and encourage people to visit us for regular sight tests that can help spot a variety of conditions before they become big problems.’

Attendees were also able to take advantage of an interactive workshop given by dispensing manager Phil Clarke and dry eye champion Julia Harper, who spoke about the use of eye drops and other treatments available in store. 

The talk finished with a Q&A session.

Community involvement

Teresa added: ‘We’re always keen to get involved with our local community and speaking to groups and clubs is a great way to do this. 

‘Specsavers has long been a champion of the importance of regular eye tests and general eye health, so we really value opportunities to keep eye health in the forefront of people’s minds.’
