    National Eye Health Week (NEHW) promotes the importance of eye health and regular sight tests

    The fourth National Eye Health Week (NEHW) will take place on 16 – 22 September 2013. Eye care charities, organisations and health professionals from across the UK are joining together to promote the importance of eye health and the need for regular sight tests for all.

    The week, which has been established to communicate the importance of good eye health under the banner, ‘Vision Matters’, encourages people from every walk of life to take better care of their eyes and have regular sight tests. Regular sight tests are essential for maintaining healthy eyes but there are other things you can do to look after your eyes.

    A Guide to Getting Involved’ has been launched and is available as a free download from the vision matters website www.visionmatters.org.uk. The guide includes advice about how eyecare charities, organisations and health professionals from across the UK can get involved in the Week including ideas for hosting events and sponsorship opportunities.

    Practitioners can pre-register for their free National Eye Health Week resource pack and download the Guide to Getting Involved by visiting www.visionmatters.org.uk or emailing info@visionmatters.org.uk.
