Specsavers Orpington store director, Shahen Raj, hit the headlines recently for his advice during World Glaucoma Awareness Week.

Preserving eye sight

Shahen discussed the damage that can be done by the condition and advised customers to ensure they come for their regular eye tests to ensure that if they are a sufferer, they can preserve as much of their eye sight as possible through an early diagnosis.

Local recognition

Shahen said: ‘These awareness weeks are incredibly important for giving us a platform to once again force home our eye health messaging and make sure people do their utmost to look after their sight.’

‘It’s fantastic to get some local recognition and we hope that by generating some additional publicity around the event, we will be able to encourage more people to come to Specsavers and get their eyes tested.’
