Good vision is crucial to ensuring a child develops at school to the best of their ability which is why the team at Specsavers Castlebar are encouraging parents to put an eye examination on the back-to-school checklist this August.

Kids focus

As part of a kids focus throughout this month, Specsavers Castlebar is holding an event on Saturday, 15 August, whereby little ones will be made a big priority and parents can seek advice from the experienced optometrists on the importance of regular eye examinations.

Face painter

There will be a face painter in store on the day so this is an ideal opportunity to introduce the younger children to the idea of having an eye test!  

Children’s lenses

The Specsavers staff Castlebar can guarantee that your child will receive the appropriate advice and care when it comes to having their spectacles prescribed and dispensed. Specsavers Castlebar carry a number of eyewear ranges specifically designed for children and the experts at Specsavers believe they have identified the ideal lens material in their ongoing drive to make children’s lenses as safe as possible.

SuperTough lenses

The SuperTough lenses will help prevent any of the familiar breakages to lenses that happen as part of children’s active lifestyles. Parents can also feel safe in the knowledge that SuperTough lenses come as standard in glasses for under-16s. At Specsavers, all glasses in the kids’ €55 range are free with an under-12s’ HSE optical voucher. Specsavers Castlebar offer SuperTough single vision lenses free in their children’s glasses as standard.

Glasses for children

Specsavers Castlebar recently launched exciting ranges of glasses for children including The Walt Disney Company collection and leading footwear brand, Converse. Specsavers recommends an eye examination for all children before the age of six and then depending on the results of that initial test, every 12-24 months.  

Kid’s event

Make sure to pop into Specsavers Castlebar’s kid’s event on Saturday, 15 August to ensure that as a parent, you are in the know about caring for your child’s eye health.
