We're supporting Eye Health Week

SVI National Eye Health activities for 2018 will be running from Friday 21 September through to Friday 28 September.

It’s a busy time for us as we go out to all of Sandwell's six towns to tell the general public about the importance of taking care of their eyesight and getting a regular sight test. If they or someone they know already has sight problems, we can offer guidance and support on where to go for help. Our message – ‘Don't Turn a Blind Eye to Sight Loss.

Did you know that many of the sight problems that lead to blindness can be either prevented or at least slowed down by treatment as long as a condition is diagnosed early? If you are over 40 an eyesight test every two years is like insuring your car or home against risk: eyesight is much more precious than material items that can be replaced. Many opticians offer free tests as well - so don't delay, book your eye test today.

You will find us at the stores below from 10am to 3pm on the following days.

Friday 21 September - Asda Oldbury

Monday 24 September - Tesco Cradley Heath

Tuesday 25 September - Tesco West Bromwich

Wednesday 26 September - Morrison's Wednesbury

Thursday 27 September - Asda Cape Hill Smethwick

Friday 28 September - Asda Great Bridge

Contact the office if you would like to help us at one of the stores, or just pop in to a store near you to say hello to members of the SVI team. We will have lots of eye health information and details of SVI's upcoming activities too.
