Video for social media
Social media is a great way to spread the word - you can use our short video on social media, along with a link to, www.aop.org.uk/absee, using the hashtag #ABSee. Don’t forget to ask your friends and family to do the same.
The AOP will also be sharing social media posts – find us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
OT has also produced a patient-friendly video for practices to use, which is now part of the electronic campaign resource pack. The short video explores five simple tips that parents can follow for protecting their child's eyes.
Use our leaflet on children’s eye health to find out why sight is so important for a child’s academic and social development. We recommend that children have a sight test from around the age of three, at least every two years, so that any problems can be picked up and treated early.
Print our worksheets Animal eye facts and Design glasses and draw eyes for your child to complete – to make learning about eye health fun.
