More than 200 school children in Dunfermline had a lesson in eye care from Specsavers.

Staff from the store visited seven schools in the local area to explain the importance of having regular eye tests.

The team visited Townhill, Crossford, St. Margaret’s & Commercial, St. Patrick’s, Cardenden, Cowdenbeath and Fulford primary schools.

Grace Hepburn, director of the Specsavers Dunfermline store, said: ‘The team enjoyed the visits as it gave us a great opportunity to get out into the local community and talk about the importance of eye health.

Examinations are vital as they not only check your eyesight but can also pick up on signs of other health issues, such as diabetes.  

Eye tests important for growing children

We tried to cover a wide range of topics from how the eye works to why regular eye tests are important, especially for young children who are still growing.

The pupils asked lots of questions which prompted interesting discussions. We would like to thank the primary schools and children for welcoming us into their classrooms and allowing us to talk about how important it is to take good care of your eyes.’
