A LOCAL optician is urging bus drivers in Hyde and parents responsible for the school run to get their eyes tested.
Specsavers in Hyde is hoping that bus drivers and parents will get their eyes checked in the store on Market Place so their vision is top of the class as they begin the school run after the long summer break.
To encourage drivers to take this time to check up on their eye health, Specsavers in Hyde is giving away free eye exams to any drivers who bring in their bus driving licence throughout September.
Store director Diane Wood of Specsavers in Market Place explains: ‘With school starting this month, we’d like to make sure that it’s not just the kids who are prepared. Whether your kids travel with you to get to school, or they get the bus, everyone wants to know that they’re getting there safely and regular eye exams are the easiest way to do this.’
‘Any local school bus drivers can bring along their driving licence, and we’ll make sure they get a full eye exam free of charge, as our way of ensuring that children in Hyde are getting school as safely as possible.’
‘And any parents who want to take this as their chance to get their eyesight tested can bring their kids along too, to ensure the whole family is in tip-top shape for the new school year. Children under 16 and those in full time education get their eyes tested for free, and we’ve got a huge range of frames which appeal to young and old alike.’
