I have been wearing glasses and contact lenses for over a decade and my mum has been wearing glasses for as long as I can remember.
Consequently, little man will probably need glasses in the near future, but I am happy he won’t need to wear boring and old-fashionable glasses. Instead, he could go for some cool characters inspired frames!
Over the weekend, we had the pleasure of watching the new Finding Dory movie before its release, thanks to Specsavers. We were also introduced to the new Finding Dory kid’s glasses, a collection with four different underwater-inspired frames.
The playful Finding Dory frames are ideal for young children from three to eight years old. They have been designed to ensure the best anatomical fit for young faces and are fitted with flex-hinges and scratch resistant lenses with a UV filter.
Not only the new collection looks great, I was pleasantly surprised to find out they are free for under 16s with an NHS voucher, otherwise priced at £64. Furthermore, children are entitled to another pair in the 2 free pairs offer.
Imagine walking out of Specsavers with not one but two free Finding Dory glasses? They will definitely inspire and motivate children to wear glasses regularly!
Little man tried them and loved the glasses featuring Dory, Nemo and Hank the octopus. He was convinced he needed glasses, so luckily we could try the SchoolScreenerEZ on the day to check his eyesight.
It is very important to have regular tests, especially for children under 8 as minor eye conditions can be corrected if detected at an early age. It is recommended that children start having their eyes tested from the age of 3-4 years old, every 2 years.
Schools can carry out a three-minute preliminary test with this handy software, thanks to the partnership between Specsavers and Thomson Screening, delivering free vision-screening software to every primary and secondary school across the country. The test was all clear, little man doesn’t need any glasses for now but one of his eyes is weaker than the other one, so we will keep an eye on it!
When was your last eye test?
