Our mission at Glastonbury was to educate people about the importance of eye health, and to remind everyone to book in for a regular eye test every two years.

Hundreds of festival-goers stopped by our tent, near the renowned Pyramid Stage, to take part in an interactive, fun activity, whilst our volunteers were on hand to give helpful tips and information on how best to help protect your eyes.

Whether you were at Glastonbury and able to enjoy this unique experience, or watching at home, we wouldn't want you to miss out on our helpful tips on how best to look after your eyes.
