Eye care specialists from Specsavers in Glenrothes were on hand to offer expert advice on optical conditions at the recent Fife Science Festival.
Specsavers Glenrothes store director Stewart Wilson said: ‘We were thrilled to send representatives of our store to this local science festival to highlight different eye conditions and share expert advice.
‘We always enjoy being a part of events in the local community and contributing in the best way we can.'
Family friendly fair
Optical assistants Megan Gartshore and Carol McCallum attended the family friendly Science Fair at Rothes Halls.
The Specsavers table was piled high with informative leaflets and posters - with Megan and Carol hosting an array of activities to help educate attendees on various optical conditions. Youngsters could get a hands-on learning experience as The Royal National Institute for the Blind donated simulation glasses showing different stages of cataracts and age related macular degeneration - a condition which leads to vision loss in over 50s.
Understanding your glasses
There were also glasses on show with half standard lenses and half UltraClear coating, showcasing the differences. Similarly there were sunglasses on display with one lens polarised- this cuts horizontal glare giving clearer vision undisturbed by sun glare.
Lucky attendees to the Fife Science Festival who visited the Specsavers stand could pick up a goody bag which included various Specsavers merchandise, high-tech lens cloth and lens cleaner, an array of information leaflets and a crossword for kids. Not only that, but a free two week contact lens trial voucher and a golden ticket for 50% off frames instore was also included.
