Eve Robertson, store director at Specsavers in Romsey has stepped into the classroom to meet some very important people.

Inspiring Durrington junior school

Eve was invited to meet Yr 3 and 4 pupils to talk about vision and share her passion for the optical industry. Who knows, some of these pupils could be future opticians in Romsey in many years to come!

Children were made aware about spotting the early signs of vision problems - such as being unable to read the whiteboard in class - and how this could mean they many need to wear glasses.

Having lots of fun

The session was very interactive and fun with the school children taking part in activities and Eve also hosted a question and answer section. The children had lots of great insights and Eve found it invaluable to see how her little VIPs view the importance of vision.

The school were given some activity packs for the teachers to also continue their learning in class.

Importance of looking after your eyes

Eve said: 'Everyone made me feel very welcome and I really enjoyed the session. It is never too early to start learning about the best ways to keep your eyes in good condition and the children seemed very engaged with this message.

'As I am sure many will know, a child's eyesight is vitally important to their development at school. 

'Any issues with vision can impact their learning so we urge any parents who haven't yet had their child's vision tested to book an appointment. We suggest a good time for their first eye examination is before they start school.'
