Specsavers Ballymena not only provided all the prizes for this years Ladies Open Day at Galgorm Castle Golf Club but they also carried out free hearing checks for all the competitors as well.

Comprehensive hearing services

Specsavers Hear Care Director Joanne Torrens explains: ‘Specsavers is well known for its optical services but people are often surprised to learn that we provide comprehensive hearing services as well.

'Sponsoring the Ladies Open at Galgorm Castle was a great way to spread the word and let the competitors see how easy our three-minute screening is and indeed how important it can be in highlighting any hearing problems.’

Hearing test every two years

‘Hearing loss is really common but people often overlook it when it comes to their healthcare routine. If left untreated it can affect every aspect of life and lead to depression and social isolation. We recommend that people over the age of 55 should get a hearing test every two years.’

Free screening

Specsavers Ballymena provides free three-minute hearing screenings, with no need to book an appointment. The screener lets customers know whether they would benefit from a full hearing test, which takes about an hour.
