This pop-up spa in the flagship Vision Express location on Oxford Street invited press and some celebrities to stop in for a free eye test, a pampering spa treatment and a healthy lunch or supper.
We took this healthy brief on-board and in keeping with the theme decided to concentrate on foods that promote good eye health. All food and drink on the menu therefore contained high levels of lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that are important in maintaining eye health. Foods that are high in these antioxidants include green leafy vegetables and those of yellow and orange colour.
