See the benefits of a smoke free England

Quit smoking when England bans smoking in enclosed public places on 1st July and you can reduce your risk of suffering a serious eye disease.

Tobacco contains toxic compounds, which can damage the eye and lead to a number of eye conditions including age-related macular degeneration and cataracts.

According to research published by the RNIB smokers are twice as likely to loose their sight in later life than non-smokers.

However, the good news is that if you quit smoking your risk of developing serious eye conditions such as AMD begins to decline.
