Fife Flyers ice hockey player Chase Schaber, dropped into Specsavers in Glenrothes recently to ensure his sight was in top condition ahead of his upcoming matches.
Chase Schaber has been crowned man of the match twice so far this season and knows how important it is to be alert on the ice. He also used his visit to the store to help raise awareness of the importance of regular eye tests.
Friendly and professional service
Chase said: ‘Ensuring you have your eyes checked regularly and have an up to date prescription, if required, is important whether you are playing sport or driving. It is a really simple way to keep our roads safer. I’d like to thank the team at Specsavers for their friendly and professional service. I would encourage everyone who hasn’t had an eye test in the last two years to book one now.’
Specsavers, in partnership with road safety charity Brake have been urging drivers, cyclists and pedestrians to make a pledge to stay sharp on the roads and help prevent the 2,900 casualties caused each year due to poor driver vision. With sight-related accidents costing £33m annually, Specsavers stores across Fife are calling for the quarter of drivers that have not had an eye examination in two years to visit the store.
Best of luck to Fife Flyers
Gary Wood, store director at Specsavers, said: ‘It was great to welcome star player Chase into our store this week to help us raise awareness of the importance of regular eye tests.
‘During the winter when mornings and evenings are darker, it’s vital that your eyes are in good shape, particularly when driving in poor light.
‘Fife Flyers have a busy schedule of tough games ahead against local rivals, and we would like to wish Chase and the team the best of luck for their upcoming matches.’
Specsavers stores across Fife including Leven, Glenrothes, Kirkcaldy and Fife Healthcall are part of the ‘Great 8’ sponsors for the professional team this season.
