Optometrist spots tumour and saves life of Northampton teenager

Watch a report by ITV News Anglia's Claire McGlasson.

A teenager from Northampton is urging everyone to book a sight test after a routine appointment saved her life.

Lauren Whittington says eye tests aren't just for people who need glasses.

Her optometrist picked up symptoms which showed she had a brain tumour.

Within three hours she and her family were told that doctors would have to operate.

The pressure that I spotted behind Lauren's eyes set me off to think that something wasn't right.

– Nicole Barber, Optometrist
