The Llandudno store marked National Children’s Eye Health Month by holding additional clinics specifically for children.

Raising funds for the RNIB

The team in store hoped to raise funds for The Royal National Institute of Blind People, while also raising awareness of the importance of eye tests.

The fundraising effort comes after research from Specsavers and the Royal National Institute of Blind People revealed around 20 per cent of school children still have an undiagnosed vision problem - despite eye tests being free with an NHS voucher.

Why children's eye health matters

Store director Lorna Heliwell said: 'We wanted to get involved and help drive home to parents just how important it is that they keep on top of their children's eye health. Good eye health plays such an important role in a child’s overall development - be it enhancing their language and cognitive skills, to improving their social abilities when interacting with others. Therefore, it is shocking to learn that one in five children haven't had an eye test in the last two years.'
