01 Mar Eye for an Eye
Concept has a social ethos about community and relationship with our environment.
Reducing our plastic footprint is only part of the story. For over a decade, we’ve worked closely with charities, trusts and care providers to address social health inequalities Why? Because healthy eyes make all the difference to a person’s quality of life and dignity and, we believe that access to quality vision care is a human health right.
With our Advanced Eye Examination at Concept, our patients can benefit from preventative care before a problem emerges. Our optometrists assess disease and pathology, optimise vision and even save lives. Working with local charities such as ‘Changing Lives’ https://www.changing-lives.org.uk/corporate-support/life-changing-healthcare-from-concept-eye-clinic/ we invest in serving those that need us most. Our ‘Eye for an Eye’ campaign invites you to bring in your old spectacles (not cases) and we will make a vision care donation to help some of the most vulnerable people in our society

How can you help?
All you need to do is bring in a pair of your old glasses and we will donate to charity by offering an Eye Examination and prescription glasses (if needed) to a service user from ‘Changing Lives’
