Speaking at the Fourth Ministerial Conference of Environment and Health in Budapest today a spokesperson for the World Health Organisation (WHO) expressed its concern for the state of health-care in Switzerland.

In a press conference this morning it was revealed that "concerns had been growing over the past decade" but only now had it become "a serious issue"

"We are especially concerned with eye care in the country... Opticians have been neglecting their job, it has come to our attention that literally thousands of Swiss people are in need of glasses but simply have not received the necessary treatment. Many of these visually disadvantaged people have been allowed to referee quarter finals in the European Championships in Portugal! This is unacceptable."

In an attempt to solve Switzerland's optometric woe's all branched of Lloyd's Pharmacy will be offering free eye tests for Swiss people.
