Uptake of NHS Sight Tests amongst Children
See More, Learn More, Go Further!
The ‘See More, Learn More, Go Further Project!’ is a Greater Manchester initiative led by the NHS aimed at encouraging children to have regular eye sight tests, as currently only 1 in 5 children have had their eyes tested.
Children who see well are better able to access education, find it easier to engage in lessons and can achieve more academically. They also find it easier to participate in sporting activities and interact with their peers with confidence.
The GM Eye Health Network has liaised with the Confederation of GM LOCs to promote a collaborative approach to the campaign by providing e-resources (see below).
There is also a supporting Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership media campaign about children’s eye health and the importance of regular sight tests during National Eye Health Week 24-30 September 2018.
