A FREE meeting to look at how people can have healthy eyes is being organised for Musgrove Park Hospital Foundation Trust members.
It is part of the hospital’s Medicine for Members series and is for staff and public members of the foundation trust.
The session offers an opportunity to hear an expert from the trust give advice and information on the latest research and evidence on a key issue of health interest.
Consultant ophthalmologist Roger Gray will present on the subject ‘How to have Healthy Eyes’ on Tuesday, January 27, at 7 pm.
Many causes of sight loss are preventable if caught early.
The event will look at the effects of age-related disease and illness on eyesight, such as cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, and macular degeneration, and show people what to look out for and what can be done.
There will be an opportunity for questions and the meeting will end at 8 pm with a free wine and nibbles buffet.
Places can be booked by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01823 342460 and leaving a message.
Joining the foundation trust is free and gives people an opportunity to have a say in the future of the hospital.
Members receive regular newsletters from the hospital, invitations to exclusive meetings, and can take part in elections for a members’ council.
The members’ council has a majority of publicly-elected members and makes key decisions about the future of Musgrove Park.
