The team at the Montrose store is advising locals looking for an appointment before the end of the school holidays to get in touch at their earliest convenience.

Summer check-ups

The store has seen a record number of bookings over the past few months as parents organise check-ups for children during the summer.

Christopher Nugent, store director at Specsavers in Montrose, said: ‘It’s fantastic to see so many people take the time to book in an appointment for an eye examination – it’s important to have your sight checked every two years.

‘The school holidays are also a great time to check your children’s eyes are in top condition ahead of the new school term.

‘We’d advise anyone hoping for an appointment before the end of the school holidays to get in touch as soon as they can to ensure they secure a booking.’
