Optical assistant Sue Barklam has been helping people better understand how to care for their eyes as they get older, as part of an event organised by the Shropshire Rural Community Council (RCC).

Wise and Well

Sue was on hand at the recent Wise and Well Information Day to talk to visitors about the importance of regular sight tests in maintaining healthy vision. As well as offering advice, Sue also carried out free specs MOTs (cleaning and adjustments) for attendees.

Regular sight tests

‘The RCC’s Wise and Well Team does some fantastic work across Shropshire, so we’re proud to have been involved in their Information Day this month,’ said Bridgnorth store director, Teresa Hughes. ‘As we get older, our eyes become more susceptible to certain problems, such as floaters and cataracts, but regular sight tests can help to diagnose these conditions so that treatment can begin, ensuring you retain the best possible quality of vision.’

Committed to supporting the community

As part of its commitment to supporting local residents, the RCC’s Wise and Well Team organises regular events for people to access quality advice in their community, working with local businesses such as Specsavers to provide information on relevant topics.
