Trust publishes new patient information leaflets
The Eyecare Trust has revised and updated its patient information leaflets. The ‘new look’ leaflets, which feature lifestyle photography designed to engage and inspire the reader, provide helpful advice and information on a wide range of topics.
The portfolio of leaflets includes:
• The Eye Examination
• Clear Vision Safe Driving
• Contact Lenses
• Your Child’s Eyesight
• VDUs and your Eyes
• And, How to See Well, Look Good and Feel Great.
Practitioners can customise the wearing and caring for gas permeable and soft contact lens leaflets to provide personalised advice for his or her patients.
Production of nine of the leaflets was kindly sponsored by the Central (LOC) Fund, whilst the tenth leaflet, ‘Vision through Generations’, forms part of a wider promotional campaign that the Trust is running in conjunction with HOYA Lens UK to generate public awareness of presbyopia.
Commenting on the new leaflets, the Trust’s Chairman, Iain Anderson said: “We know from talking to Friends of the Trust that our leaflets are a valuable in-practice resource so we’re grateful to our generous sponsors for giving us the opportunity to refresh the content and look to ensure they provide patients with the most up-to-date advice and information possible.”
The leaflets can be ordered by contacting Tara Burghardt on 0845 129 5001. The core leaflets cost £8 per hundred for members and £20 for non members and the ‘Wearing and Caring for . . .’ leaflets cost £12 per hundred for members and £24 for non members.
