If you like getting out and about and about and getting active in Sussex, having great eyesight is a must.

And as proud sponsors of the Sussex School Games, the Specsavers stores across the county are keen to support local people to achieve their activity goals, whether they are planning to play for England or have a kickabout in their local park on a Sunday.

Keep your eye on the ball

As a former professional footballer, and now professional pundit, Ian Wright knows how important it is to look after your eyes. He has worn glasses for more than a decade and has a family history of glaucoma, so is keen to encourage others to have regular eye tests.

Ian said: ‘I noticed my eyesight going when I turned 40. I could not do my pundit job without them as I could not see well enough. There is a history of glaucoma in my family, so I have to have regular eye health checks and encourage everyone to check their eyes. The more we can get people talking about good eye health and having regular checks the better.’

Choose the right eyewear for you

The eye health experts at Specsavers are here to help you find the right eyewear for you, whether glasses or contact lenses (or a combination of both) best suit your lifestyle and to give you advice on how to take care of your vision to stay active for as long as you can.

So if you have not had your vision checked for a while it might be time to book an appointment at your local Specsavers.
