Customers and staff at Specsavers Swanley had an extra special treat this festive season – as Santa popped in for an eye test.

And it was well-timed, as he will need great eyesight to make his list – and check it twice – to be sure which children have been naughty and nice this year. Not to mention to fly his sleigh all over the world in the dark on Christmas Eve.

A word from the store director

Faheem Ayub, store director in Swanley, said: ‘We were delighted to see Santa in store, and are pleased to be able to report that he passed his eye test with flying colours.

‘So he should not have any problems delivering all those millions of presents while the rest of us are tucked up in bed on Christmas Eve.’

Regular eye tests

‘Whatever you do for a living, regular eye tests are really important. So if you have not been to see us at Specsavers Swanley for a while, why not pop in while you are doing your Christmas shopping to book a test.

‘And if you do need new glasses, why not treat yourself to some designer frames this Christmas. You deserve a present too, after all.’
