When it comes to the health of our eyes, it’s extremely important that we’re caring for them properly and visiting the optician regularly. The best way we can enforce how important this is, is by visiting local youngsters and educating them.
Our owner and optician Luke went to visit the children at Idle CE Primary School this week to speak to the Year 6 students about their eyes and how to look after them. He provided the children with lots of fun facts about eyes, information about conditions and leaflets to pass on to their parents.
While Luke was at the school he also delivered an assembly encouraging the children and their parents to donate any old spectacles to our practice. Luke works very closely with a charity called Africa Connection, which provides impoverished children in Africa with the eyewear they desperately need.
