Erris Burke has been chosen from hundreds of proud glasses wearers as a regional finalist for Specsavers’ Spectacle Wearer of the Year.


Spectacle Wearer of the Year 2018

Glasses wearers across the Republic of Ireland and UK have been showing off their specs style by sharing their selfies online throughout the spring and summer.


There are five age categories – 16-24; 25-34; 35-44; 45-59 and over 60, plus a Facebook favourite voted for by the public. All age category winners will win a VIP makeover, with one overall winner taking home the ultimate accolade in specs wearing.


Erris was shortlisted for the 16-24 category and was invited to visit the store to receive her prize of a bottle of champagne, a certificate and a €215 glasses voucher. She took the opportunity to try Specsavers’ innovative Frame Styler technology to help choose a new pair of specs, ahead of the next round of judging.


Attitude Towards Wearing Glasses

Speaking about her attitude towards wearing glasses, Erris says: ‘I love wearing glasses now, at the start it took some getting used to, but I slowly started to get into different styles of glasses and now I love going into Specsavers Eyre Square to see what styles are available.’
