A young girl was able to get treatment for a potentially life-threatening tumour when an optometrist at the Crumlin branch of Specsavers who was carrying out a test noticed something wrong.
According to the Irish Mirror, 12-year-old Bella Rose Delaney had been having severe headaches for two months. Her father Dean made an appointment for her to attend at Specsavers for an eye test. She also had an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) scan.
Her tumour was then diagnosed and she was able to get early treatment that involved two surgeries. Her dad paid tribute to the Specsavers team who were able to help Bella Rose get a diagnosis and the subsequent medical care.
He said that they were “immensely grateful to the team at Specsavers Crumlin”, and stressed the importance of getting additional tests or scans if you feel there is something seriously wrong.
