An optical assistant from Specsavers Glenrothes helped raise awareness of the importance of eye tests for road safety by leafleting and gifting goodie bags to passers-by.

Megan Gartshore set up a small stall in Lyon Square in the Kingdom Shopping Centre with Specsavers’ shoppers filled with lens cleaning cloths, sample bottles of glasses cleaner, a Specsavers bug, key ring and leaflets.

A legal requirement

Megan said: ‘Our stall was very popular on the day as I handed out over 100 bags. It was a great way to speak to people in the local community and raise awareness of how important good eye health is to road safety.

‘A regular eye examination is a legal requirement for drivers but it is your personal responsibility to ensure you are having your eyes tested frequently.’
