Why did Pirates wear Earrings?

Why did Pirates wear earrings?

Did you know that many many years ago, pirates were convinced that wearing earrings would improve or even cure bad eyesight.  They believed that the precious metals possessed magical healing powers.

Here at Pritchard Cowburn Opticians, we don’t do earrings, but we do offer an extended eye examination including OCT screening, which is used in diagnosing many eye conditions including, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, macular edema, and macular hole.  OCT is often used by our Optometrists to evaluate the optic nerve and changes to the fibers caused by glaucoma.

If you’d like to spread the cost of your extended eyecare and benefit from extra discounts, you could always join our eyecare plan from just £7.50 per month.

So phone 01239 612004 or call into our practices to book an extended eye examination today, and help improve your eyesight.
