Tipperary AMD Free Eye Tests

Every September, leading sight charities and organisations come together to help raise awareness of Age Related Macular Degeneration (AMD), the leading cause of blindness among adults over fifty years old here in Ireland and which affects one in every ten people.

Members of the Association of Optometrists are offering free eye tests during AMD Week and you can find a list of optometrists around Tipperary offering the test on the Association of Optometrists own website simply by clicking HERE

For our many readers outside Tipperary, note:– Free AMD screening will be available through a mobile testing unit, which will visit the cities of Galway, Limerick, Waterford, Dublin and Cork during AMD Week, at Golf Clubs & Libraries. (Galway: 25th September – Limerick: 26th September – Waterford: 27th September – Dublin: 28th September – Cork: 29th September.)

AMD Awareness Week 2012 began on September 22nd & will finish on September 30th 2012, so if you have an elderly parent or grandparent who is not computer literate, please do inform them ASAP.
