Csilla Leczkesiova, Margaret Moloney and Sohaila Lindheim have been chosen from hundreds of proud glasses wearers as regional finalists 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.

Csilla, Margaret and Sohaila were invited to visit the store to receive their prize of a bottle of champagne, a certificate and a €215 glasses voucher. They 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 their attitude towards wearing glasses, Csilla says: ‘I have been wearing glasses for as long as I can remember, so I really feel glasses are a part of my face now!’

Margaret adds: ‘I love the wide range of glasses that is now available to glasses wearers. I really enjoy going into my local Specsavers and trying on different frames.’

Sohaila adds: ‘I’ve worn glasses since I was twelve and now I’m very particular with what frames I wear. The Frame Styler technology available in Specsavers has helped choose the right glasses for me.’
