Let's Talk About Brain Tumours

Sep 21 2021 • 12 mins

In this episode Chandos talks to Optical Engagement Manager Lorcan Butler about the importance of eye exams as these appointments can tell you much more about your overall health than just if you need to wear glasses.

Lorcan talks you through what happens at a typical appointment, what your optician looks out for and some of the health conditions, including brain tumours that can be detected during these eye exams and also what happens if something is detected when you have an eye exam.
