Youngsters from Rosewood Primary School benefited from eye health advice when Coulby Newham store manager Lynda Matthias attended the school’s recent health event.

Specsavers took a stall at the Primary school awareness-raising event alongside an array of other stall holders who were there to offer advice to the children and their parents.

Lynda spoke about general eye health and the importance of eye examinations, which are free for children on the NHS.

The children also had a chance to look at, and try on, various kids’ ranges available from Specsavers had on show such as Disney, Marvel and Crayola.

A word from the store manager

Lynda said: ‘It was great to meet the children from Rosewood Primary school and their parents. I had a great day visiting the school, giving them more information about eye health and showcasing all the different ranges we have available for children.

‘We recommend that children get their eyes tested by the age of three before they go into full-time education as it means we often can identify problems at an early age, some of which have the potential to be corrected if caught on time.

‘Children’s eye examinations are free on the NHS and we recommend that children get their eyes tested every two years.’
