Have you heard about the Year of Young People? It's an initiative giving young people the opportunity to have their voices heard. A range of events are happening throughout the year.
Optometrists, also known as ophthalmic opticians, examine and test eyes. They also look out for underlying health problems. They discuss the patient's needs to see what spectacles or contact lenses would suit them best. They then analyse the test results to prescribe spectacles or contact lenses to improve the patient's sight.
