A Hipperholme optician turned its store blue as part of a national campaign to highlight the risks of potentially harmful light.

Thornton and Wright Opticians offered free advice to the general public on the dangers of blue-violet light - part of the visible light we see which is present in sunlight, and emitted by smartphones, tablet devices and energy-saving lightbulbs.

The Deputy Mayor and Consort of Calderdale, Councillor Lisa Lambert and Mr Mohammend Naeem attended the event for an eye check-up and gave advice and tips on managing the risk of blue-violet light.
