Devon Nature and Landscape Photography Competition 2018
Bill Opticians, The Medical Eye Clinic and Devon Wildlife Trust have come together to promote conservation and awareness of both our natural surroundings in Devon and eye sight. What better way to do it, than with a Photography competition.
Devon is a beautiful county with two coasts, moors, woodlands and so many other amazing natural habits, which are home to a diverse range of wildlife. Devon Wildlife Trust exists solely to protect our county's unique natural environment and its diverse range of wildlife. Did you know that Devon is even home to England's first beaver re-introduction project? Please do take a look at their website to see some of the amazing work they are doing.
Devon is also home to an aging population, with a disproportionate number of people over the age of 65, with projections showing this is likely to increase at a significant rate over the next 10 years. Whilst eye diseases and disorders are not a unique problem to the over 65's, they do unfortunately become more commonplace. With conditions such as Cataracts, Glaucoma and Age Related Macular Degeneration are all more likely to occur the older we get. A significant way to lessen the effects of sight threatening conditions, is early detection and treatment. Which begins with regular opticians appointments every 2 years (or sooner if required).
