A Weston opticians has undergone an extensive refurbishment.

Vision Express, in High Street, unveiled its new look by promoting the growing issue of glaucoma, which is one of the biggest cause of preventable sight loss.

There are an estimated 7,294 cases in North Somerset, which is almost six per cent of the population and higher than England’s average.

Glaucoma has no early symptoms, but if left untreated it can lead to blindness.

Store manager Anni Horsfield said: “We’re really pleased with our new store.

“It’s brighter and more spacious, and we have a greater range of frames with plenty more choice for our customers.”

The store was opened by Eryl Williams from the International Glaucoma Association, who demonstrated the tools available to sufferers and provided treatment advice to staff.
