The team at Specsavers Cowley encouraged customers and passers-by to learn more about contact lenses at their 'Big Fit Day' on Saturday 4 June.

Contact lenses explained

The event was a day dedicated to offering help and advice for those considering swapping their specs for contact lenses.

Staff were on hand during the day with a range of competitions and prizes for adults and children, and optometrists were available to talk about the different options for wearing contact lenses, offering guidance, fitting advice and a free trial for anyone interested in giving them a try.

Store director, Jason Komodikis, said: ‘Although contact lenses are a great alternative to wearing glasses, a lot of people are still sceptical. The idea of trying contact lenses for the first time, or even trying them again if you didn’t get on with them in the past, can be daunting. But we’re here to give you a helping hand and to demonstrate the freedom that contact lenses can offer.’ 

Jason added: ‘There are plenty of options for contact lenses; technology has really moved forward. We’re excited to welcome people into store for some fun and games, and to show people that contact lenses can be a great choice!’
