Kids clinics come to Basingstoke
Specsavers in Basingstoke held a fun day to celebrate the introduction of its Sunday Kids Clinics on 5 June 2016.
Fun for the whole family!
The team invited a Minion dropped by to say hello to the children and a face painter and a balloon artist were on-hand throughout the day to keep the store’s little VIPS amused. All face painting and balloon model requests were completely free of charge however the store requested a small donation where possible to help support national charity, Vision Aid Overseas.
Launch of Sunday Kids Clinics
The fun day marked a new Kids Clinic initiative that will run every Sunday. The Clinics will offer parents the opportunity to book in tests for their children and ask the optician any questions they may have about their little one’s vision.
Why children's eyes deserve the VIP treatment
Mandeep Aujla, director at Specsavers Basingstoke and a mum herself to two children under the age of five says: ‘As a parent, I understand that our child’s health is of paramount importance. We have listened to our customers and will be improving our customer service for families by running a dedicated children’s clinic, one full day of the week on Sundays.’
'Children’s eyes can be tested at any age and we would recommend a visit before they start school and start learning to read. Also, if you spot any tell-tale signs that indicate some problems with a child’s eye sight such as watching a television at a close distance, holding a book close to the face when reading or looking at the pictures, or even looking cross-eyed, we suggest you pop in and book an appointment. Vision problems can be the reason a child does not perform well at school because they cannot see the board so the earlier a problem is detected the more chance there is of successful treatment.’
