Public blind to warning signs of sight-threatening conditions

As part of National Eye Health Week, a survey conducted for Eye Health UK revealed that the public has a low level of awareness of the ‘red flag’ symptoms linked to sight threatening eye conditions.

The warnings to look out for include acute redness in one or both eyes and a curtain, veil or shadow in your vision. Urgent medical attention should be sought if you experience any of the symptoms described. You can get more information on the Vision Matters website, which also has a wide range of information about looking after your eyes.
