Eye Health Week at the Royal Eye Hospital

An information stand is in the Atrium of the Eye Hospital this week to promote National Eye Awareness Week.

The stall will be packed with advice and tips on looking after your eyes, particularly focussing on age related macular degeneration (ARMD).

Patients, visitors and staff can find out how to aid their eye health such as healthy eating, smoking cessation and vitamin supplements.

There will also be a focus on hand hygiene prior to eye care, such as careful drop instillation to prevent cross infection. Patients, visitors and staff will also have the opportunity to test the efficiency of their hand washing technique.

There will be information available over the week on cornea donation and ocular trauma.

A representative from Henshaws Society for Blind People will also be available to chat to visitors at points during the week.

The stand will be there between 10am-2pm every day until Friday.
