Westminster Eye Health Day is hosted by The Eyes Have It partnership to raise the profile of eye health and to garner support for a national eye care strategy amongst Parliamentarians to drive policy change.

Last year’s event successfully hosted 50 Parliamentarians and supported sector calls for a National Clinical Director for Eye Care – a post that has been filled by Ms Louisa Wickham.

A template letter (Word) has been provided to support you in writing to your constituency MP to encourage them to attend the event.

You can use the Polimapper tool on the Eyes Have It website to find and contact your local MP, alongside information about eye healthcare in your area.
