WSDTaking a step into the unknown

Come and join us outside Ellis Opticians at 10am on World Sight Day and experience some of the difficulties of being visually impaired. If you're reading this, it's unlikely that you've experienced a shopping trip without being able to see where you're going, see who you're talking to or what you're about to bump into. Come along and live the experience.

The World Health Organisation has estimated that the number of blind people in the world could double in the next 25 years. To combat the leading causes of blindness and assist in preserving vision we will be participating in World Sight Day on Thursday October 14th and raising awareness of the importance of regular eye checks to pick up early signs of problems which if left untreated could lead to sight loss.
