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
There was also a supporting Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership media campaign about children’s eye health and the importance of
regular sight tests launched during National Eye Health Week 18-24 September 2017. This included radio advertising (Key 103) and social media posts
at @GM_HSC – this will be ongoing.
