Quoted @RNIB

The most common sight conditions in the UK, including cataracts, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration can be detected during a routine eye test. With optometrists re-opening after lockdown, we are urging anyone who is due an eye test to book an appointment this #EyeWeek https://t.co/2fvCezeVng

@RNIBScotland @OptomScotland This is timely. We all have to look after our health and that includes Eye health. Don’t forget to book an eye test

It is as important as ever to maintain good eye health. If you are due a check up, book an appointment with your local optometrist and discover any changes in your eyes before they effect your vision. @OptomScotland

All equipment will be sanitized between uses and the length of time spent in appointments will be kept to a minimum, with discussions of health check results conducted at the time of the eye examination or over the phone if necessary when you have left the practice.

You will be asked to wear a face covering when in the optometry practice and all practice staff will be wearing PPE, with optometrists wearing a face mask, visor, apron and gloves. Customers will also be required to use hand sanitizer on arrival.

There will be a limit to how many people can be in the practice at the same time and appointment times will be staggered. If you require a guide, they will be allowed to attend with you but you should notify the practice ahead of time so that they can prepare accordingly.

If you have concerns about your vision you should phone your optometry practice who will discuss symptoms and direct you to support. If you're required to visit an optometrist, or if you have separately been invited to an eye health check, you should attend at the specified time

Optometry practices across Scotland have introduced a range of safety measures to protect staff and customers. Eye health checks are important to maintain good eye health. Check out this video to find out what you can expect when you attend yours #NEHW20
