Credit crunch could affect eyesight31st December 2008
The charity Action for Blind People has warned the credit crunch could mean more people going blind as they avoid eye checks to save money.
It polled 2,350 adults and found more than 25% had not had an eye test in the past two years, and of those 30% blamed cost. The charity believes that at around £24, the cost of a check-up is a small price to pay compared to losing your sight. Experts say generally the maximum time a person should go between tests should be two years.
