The team at Specsavers Ilford recently took the opportunity to build their glaucoma skills in store.

Some of the retail staff at the High Road have taken a new training course designed by Specsavers and the International Glaucoma Association.

Effective treatment

It is designed to help them advise customers on how to apply their eye drops – a common treatment for glaucoma – effectively.

Treating glaucoma effectively is really important because it could stop sight loss, once discovered, from getting any worse.

A word from the ophthalmic director

Mohammed Rehmani, ophthalmic director in Ilford, said: ‘Glaucoma is the leading cause of irreversible sight loss, so getting a regular sight test is important to make sure that your eyes are healthy.

‘So why not book a test today.’
