Youngsters who visited Ludlow Specsavers on Saturday 31 May got involved in a kids fun day to coincide with the end of half term.
The store ran kids clinics all day to encourage parents to get their children’s eyes tested before going back to school. Staff also gave out goody bags and a face painter was on hand to create some weird and wonderful characters.
‘A child’s eyesight will continue to develop right up to the age of eight years old, which means that eyecare issues can still be corrected by an optician,’ said Nicola Aubrey, store director and optometrist at Specsavers in Ludlow. ‘Amblyopia or lazy eye is a common condition and realistically needs to be picked up by the age of five to be treated.
‘The school holidays are the perfect time to get your child’s eyes tested and hopefully some of the activities we have going on made the experience more enjoyable.’
