Motion text

That this House notes the end of National Eye Health Week; further notes the work of the brain tumour charity which highlights that approximately 30 per cent of people who have brain tumours experience visual symptoms and 60 per cent of people with brain tumours experience headaches and they visit their GPs without going for an eye test; urges people to be mindful that eye tests do not simply indicate if you need glasses but can give greater insight into other problems; and further encourages the general public to ensure that their two year eye test is an important part of any health routine.
