Specsavers in Waltham Cross is saluting the town’s literary links by encouraging avid readers to make time for their eye health this summer.

Encouraging book worms

Prolific Victorian novelist Anthony Trollope lived here in Waltham for over a decade in the 19th century, just along the road from Specsavers on High Street now stands.

And now the team from the store are encouraging book worms to make sure they’re looking out for their eye health.

A word from the director

Tony Martin, store director of Specsavers in Waltham Cross said: ‘We’re lucky to boast such a fantastic literary connection here in Waltham Cross and we want to make sure residents continue to enjoy the past time of reading to the full.

‘We encourage people young and old to schedule an eye test at least once every two years. Not only does this allow us to provide you with any necessary prescriptions, but to monitor the general health of your eyes.

'So, treat it like you would any other regular health check and get yourself to store while you have some down time this summer – and then you can get back to your book.’
