Your eyes are quite extraordinary...

In a milli-second they capture images and transfer these images to your brain for evaluation and storage.

Take a moment to picture a loved one, a favourite piece of stunning vista in your mind's eye. This is the miracle of sight as all of these cherished memories were originated by your eyes.

Elaine is going to speak about the importance of eye care and the main causes of vision loss notably:



·Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD)

·Retinal Detachment

·Ocular Injuries and Infection

YES! Every picture tells a story! Optique Opticians are dedicated to the very highest standard of eye care and this means maintaining the health of your eyes as well as the clarity of your vision. And make no mistake, the health of your eyes can start to deteriorate well before your vision suffers.

We look forward to meeting you there.
