Community Contact with Radius Elloughton Gardens

Here at Canon Street Optometrists, we’re always looking for ways to improve people’s vision, and ultimately their quality of life.

One of our initiatives was for one of our optometrists, Martina Fellmann, and our Practice Principal, Vanessa Cumming, to visit Radius Elloughton Gardens to discuss overall eye health, but in particular some common eye conditions that affect us as we age gracefully, such as Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration, Cataracts, and Floaters and Spots.

Glaucoma is often referred to as the silent eye disease as in its early stages it can be symptomless.

The audience at Radius Elloughton Gardens was wonderful! They were very engaged and enjoyed sharing their own experiences and asked lots of fantastic questions. It was an incredible experience for both Martina and Vanessa, who also baked up a storm!

Martina spoke wonderfully about eye health, and also about spectacles and the importance of them fitting correctly in order for them to be comfortable, and to provide the best vision possible. Luckily, Vanessa had taken with her all the necessary tools so was able to clean and straighten a lot of frames while having a good catch up with all the residents.

A huge thank you must be extended to the residents of Radius Elloughton Gardens for their incredible hospitality. We can’t wait to come back again soon!
