Specsavers Camden Town is encouraging everyone to have regular sight tests to ensure that they’re taking care of their health and sight.

More benefits than one

Eye tests do more than just benefit your vision – they can also detect illnesses such as cataracts, glaucoma and even diabetes which can all ultimately lead to blindness.

Health and fitness focus

Store director, Naveen Nayab said: ‘We want to raise awareness of the importance of sight tests and make people realise how important they are for health, particularly as health and fitness has become increasingly popular.’

Early signs of diabetes

‘Diabetes affects over 4 million people in the UK*. If early signs are detected by an eye test, 90% of cases of blindness can be prevented, so it’s vital that people get their eyes checked regularly for any irregularities.’
