The IMO hosts Senior Week to address the main issues surrounding age-related eye disorders

The major IMO Foundation initiative is aimed at the prevention of eye problems for the over 60s and is taking place to mark the European Year for Active Ageing and Solidarity Between Generations.

SENIOR WEEK will run from 17 to 21 September and consist of five days of activities to raise awareness of age-related disorders, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy, and will include free check-ups for the over 60s.

Senior Week will also address issues related to quality of life and general health after the age of 60 and feature discussions, in which guests from this age group, who are still fully active and at the peak of their abilities, will recount their experience from a personal and professional perspective. The week will finish on 21 September with a playful proposition, about which we will soon be providing more information on IMO website.

Anyone wishing to book an appointment for a free check-up or to reserve a place for any of the activities during Senior Week can do so from 3 September by calling 93 253 1500 or visiting IMO in person.
