‘Make One Change’ to your family life throughout National Parents’ Week at Eye Emporium opticians
This week is National Parents’ Week and our team are encouraging parents to ‘Make One Change’.
Run by The Family and Childcare Trust, National Parents’ Week is about the one small change that organisations and companies can make to improve the quality of your family life.
At Eye Emporium, we want to help parents to recognise the benefits of regular eye care for their children as this plays a huge part in their on-going development and education.
To mark this very important week, we are offering FREE eye examinations and FREE eyewear on the NHS for children across all twelve of our branches.
Using the latest optical technology, our team provide exceptional eye care and guidance on the latest transitions and tints to protect children’s vision. We are also experienced in children’s contact lenses fitting and provide a wide range of designer and non-designer eyewear for your children to choose from.
Children’s sight tests are at a ten year low in the UK, and our team of optical professionals want to educate and care for your family’s vision. Around 1 in 5 children suffer with an undiagnosed eye condition and it is important that parents are vigilant with their children’s eyesight. Squints, excessive blinking and soreness are all common signs of conditions that if left untreated, could result in vision loss.
So what can you do to best protect your children’s eye health?
- Firstly, make sure they attend annual eye examinations with an experienced optometrist throughout their school life.
- Be sure to ask the optometrist about any concerns that you have with your children’s vision.
- If your children need glasses, make sure you choose robust frames.
- Be vigilant. Provide a well-lit environment for them to work and play in.
- Protect their vision against harmful UV rays with high quality sunglasses and tints.
To help celebrate Parents’ Week nationwide, the Family and Childcare Trust are giving away prizes every day as part of the Make One Change daily competition. Visit their Facebook page daily and enter by commenting on the competition post.
