AMD Awareness Week

AMD InformationIt is AMD awareness week again – 15 -21 September.

AMD (Age Related Macular Degeneration) is a condition which may affect up to 1 in 10 of the over 50s in Ireland.

Like many Optometrists across Ireland, McLeish Optometrists will be offering a free AMD test to those over 50s who might benefit, but this will not be a full eye test- we would recommend anyone with concerns contact us for sure, but regular examinations are paramount to the early detection of AMD. Everyone should have their eyes tested every two years, but if there are any symptoms it is essential to be checked as soon as possible- weeks or even days can make a difference!

More information on AMD is available here, or visit the official AMD Ireland Site.

Call us in Kingscourt (042) 9698841 or in Bailieborough (042) 9694456 or Contact Us here.
