A very special guest paid a flying visit to Specsavers Hailsham this year – Father Christmas himself.

Quick eye test

He dropped into the store, in The Quintins, to grab a quick eye test ahead of his busiest night of the year.

Fortunately, all was well, so no presents are likely to go astray – assuming local children have been good this year, of course.

Great range of glasses

While he was in town, Father Christmas also took the opportunity to check out the great range of designer glasses that are available in store now.

Christmas wishes

Badrinath Mohandas, store director in Hailsham, said: ‘The team really enjoyed meeting Father Christmas – and were relieved to hear that they are all on the nice list this year, rather than the naughty list.

‘We hope all our customers have a terrific Christmas and New Year. We look forward to serving you again in 2018.’
