Staff at Specsavers in Porthcawl welcomed Welsh sporting star, Hallam Amos, when he visited the store for an eye test.

International rugby player

Rugby player Hallam Amos, who has also played for Newport RFC and Newport Gwent Dragons, was greeted by staff before his sight test with pre-reg optometrist, Megan Cosgrove, who then helped him to choose a new pair of frames.

Importance of eye health

Store director, Claire Edwards, says: ‘The importance of eye health should not be forgotten, especially if you’re a professional sportsman where you literally need to keep your eye on the ball.

Hallam is a young player at the top of his game, so it was fantastic to welcome him into the store for a routine eye test with Megan and to see that he is taking his eye health seriously.

Looking after your eyes is important regardless of age, profession and gender, but we hope that Hallam’s visit will inspire those who haven’t had a routine eye test in the last two years to do so.’
