Specsavers in Pontypool is holding a Big Fit event on Wednesday 17 December to encourage local residents to try contact lenses.

Customers can call in to the store between 09:30 and 16:00 to discuss which lens is right for them.

Free trial

Team members will be on hand all day to teach customers how to put lenses in and take them out and make sure people are confident handling them.

If you have a up-to-date sight test, you can then take away one pair of monthly lenses, or five pairs of daily disposable lenses for a free trial.

A lens for everyone

Rhianne Stone, contact lens coordinator at Specsavers in Pontypool, said: ‘We hope that our Big Fit event will help show people that there is a lens out there for everyone.

‘Contact lenses are a great option for times when you don’t want to wear your glasses. New high-tech materials mean they are more comfortable than ever. And Specsavers can provide varifocal and bifocal lenses, so you needn’t feel your prescription is too complicated.

‘Monthly lenses start at just £5 a month, and we have direct debit options available, so they aren’t as expensive as people think.

‘We hope to welcome lots of customers into the store for the Big Fit. If you have been thinking about trying lenses call in and give them a go.’
