Through the Lions Eye Health Programme (LEHP), Lions Clubs from throughout the UK are being encouraged to work with eye care professionals and charities including Low Vision Services to educate people in their local communities abut the risk of eye disease – in particular conditions relating to glaucoma, diabetes and Macular Degeneration.The Lions Eye Health programme is an international initiative promoted by Lions Clubs throughout the industrialised nations. It was first launched in the UK in 1997 focusing on diabetic eye disease and glaucoma. However given the UK’s changing demographics – an ageing and more ethnically diverse population – the programme is now being re-launched to cover all major eye diseases while also supporting improved accessibility and awareness of Low Vision Services.
