Specsavers in March became a haven for young trick-or-treaters this Halloween with the store hosting a spooky special event to highlight children’s eye health.

Getting into the spirit

Staff at the opticians dressed up in a variety of Halloween costumes while the store itself was decked out in ghoulish decorations.

Specsavers March also hosted an all-day children’s clinic, with youngsters encouraged to attend in fancy dress, while visitors had the chance to claim free goody bags and enter a prize draw to win a bucket full of sweets.

Supporting National Children's Eye Health Week

The event was launched to mark the second annual National Children’s Eye Health Week, an initiative supported by Specsavers that aims to educate parents about the importance of getting regular eye tests for their children.

A word from the store director

Trevor Clark, store director at Specsavers March, said: ‘The team had a lot of fun with our Halloween event and it was great to get children learning about eye health at the same time.

‘Recent research reveals that a third of children under 18 have never been for an eye test. Early detection can help to prevent nearly half of all sight loss cases, so we would encourage parents to get regular check-ups for their children to help them keep track of their eye health.’
