Rutland man promotes National Eye Health Week after his eye test picked up a tumour
A man has praised the health professionals who saved his life after they spotted a tumour during a routine eye test.

The £25 digital imaging test he paid for that morning had picked up a raised area on his retina which turned out to be a choroidal melanoma.
