Healthcare provider addresses population’s eye health Issues

On Monday 23 September and Tuesday 24 September, local healthcare provider South Warwickshire NHS Foundation Trust (SWFT) is hosting eye health talks.

Two million people in the UK are living with sight loss that is severe enough to have a significant impact on their daily lives. Half of this sight loss is avoidable so the Trust is aiming to educate Warwickshire residents on the preventative methods to keep eyes healthy. This will see advice offered to those suffering with eye health issues and those caring for people with eye health issues.

Trust Clinical Director for Ophthalmology and Consultant Nurse, Sarah Queen, will host the talk which takes place during National Eye Health Week. Sarah will be sharing effective tips on areas such as diet, exercise and lifestyle choices, in order to “help you to help yourself” with eye health.

The talk will provide a perfect opportunity to raise any concerns around eye health and get your questions answered by health experts.
