|« Diabetes and Firearms can mix||Christmas shopping »|
I was in specsavers yesterday for my regular eye test, this is an appointment i dont normally like, as it normally costs me quite a bit. this year my glassed have cost me just short of £300
The good news is, as a diabetic you can get the eye test done free of charge on the NHS, this is because diabetes can have several bad effects on your vision, so it is deemed bad enough that you can have an annual free eye test.
So, if diabetes can cause poor vision, why dont we qualify for optical vouchers towards the cost of glasses, old people and poor people qualify, so why not someone with an illness that is known to cause poor vision??
