Importance of regular eye tests

During this year’s Labour Party conference in Liverpool, Dame Anne visited a number of stalls. The most imaginative was the award-winning RNIB exhibition stand, designed to look like an old-fashioned haberdashers.  Dame Anne heard how sight loss currently costs the UK economy more than £6bn per year and how ensuring early treatments are available both saves money and prevents unnecessary sight loss. Therefore, Dame Anne will be encouraging everyone to make sure they get their eye’s tested regularly.
