See and be seen in National Eye Health Week?

During the period from September 18th to the 24th, Allegro Optical enthusiastically celebrates National Eye Health Week. As usual, compassion, devotion, and providing great customer service remain at the forefront of the event. Various organisations, companies, and eye health professionals are uniting with a shared objective during this annual event in the ophthalmology calendar: to enhance awareness around the importance of eye health and emphasise the significance of scheduling routine eye examinations.

The incredible degree of knowledge that all parties involved are concurrently sharing is what makes this week stand out as unique. As optometrists and opticians, we understand the importance of recognising that eye health encompasses more than just clear vision. It considers a broad spectrum of factors, all of which greatly impact the overall quality of our lives. We use state-of-the-art equipment and techniques such as Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Saccadic eye tracking during our thorough advanced optometry eye examinations to deliver comprehensive care to our valued eye care clients. Through the utilisation of these state-of-the-art instruments, our exceptionally skilled team is capable of conducting additional investigations into potential signs of ocular ailments and conditions, including AMD (Age-related Macular Degeneration), cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic retinopathy. This ultimately leads to the earliest possible intervention and the most favourable outcomes.

Therefore, during this significant week, we are coming together collectively to celebrate the developments that have been achieved in ocular healthcare. All the while emphasising the paramount importance of periodic eye examinations. Together, we possess the capacity to enact positive change in the realm of visual impairment prevention and enhance the visual health of everyone.
