Have you ever imagined what it would be like to lose your sight? Your entire life would be changed forever.

National Eye Health week begins! To kick things off, Vision Matters have chosen 'general eye health' as the topic of the day. We think this is a great topic to start the week. It's so easy for us to forget how precious our sight is, and just as easy to forget the ways that we can look after our eyes.

National Eye Health Week - Vision Matters
