Putting careers and eye care advice into action
ABDO has created some useful presentations that can be viewed by using the links below. You can select from presentations designed for primary school children aged 5 to 11 or secondary school children aged 12 or above. The presentations cover topics including who’s who in eye care, the sight test, eye conditions, spectacles, contact lenses and, for the older children, careers in eye care. The younger children’s presentation covers the basics of looking after your eyes, with fun questions about animals’ eyes and the senses.
ABDO’s vision for these presentations is to provide its members, dispensing opticians, with ready made presentations targeted at parent and toddler groups, primary and secondary school children, and adult interest groups so that they can go out into their local communities and spread the important public health messages around the importance of regular eye health checks in the prevention of sight threatening eye disease, thereby helping reduce the burden of sight loss which is predicted to increase from 2 million people in the UK today to 4 million by 2050.
