The team at Specsavers in Kingston-upon-Thames is offering greater care to customers living with glaucoma after completing a new training course.

Developed in conjunction with the International Glaucoma Association, the training will enable staff at the store to assist sufferers with their treatment, such as advising on how to effectively administer eye drops.

The Kingston-upon-Thames team also joined Specsavers around the UK in supporting World Glaucoma Week this month (11-18 March), a global initiative raising awareness about the condition and how to manage it.
