Road safety campaign 2019 – don’t swerve an eyesight campaign

An estimated 2,900 road casualties are caused by poor vision every year. Much more can be done to help to make our roads safer.

The Don’t swerve a sight test campaign is about reminding all drivers to have regular sight tests. It’s the easiest way of making sure your vision meets the legal standard and is road safe.

Some things to think about:
– Sight often deteriorates slowly so you may not even notice a change to your vision
– Driving with eyesight below the legal standard is dangerous to yourself and others
– Have a sight test every two years, and encourage other drivers to as well
– Making an appointment with an independent optometrist suhc as Penzers is easy and pain free

In the midst of a technological age, children are now exposed to another possible environmental risk factor for myopia – digital devices.

Smartphones, tablets and computers are widely used at a very early age in both home and school environments. Read more “Small screen smartphone addiction is a big risk for eye health”
