We have lots of useful information on eyewear and eyecare.

Road Safety Week is a great reminder of how important sharp vision is to keeping yourself and others safe on the roads.

Vision & Driving Information | Find an Optician | Prize Draw

Everybody should have their eyes checked at least once every two years, and more frequently if you have risk factors such as diabetes or a family history of glaucoma. These checks not only keep your vision sharp, with the perfect corrective lenses if needed, but they can also help spot early signs of a wide range of health issues. And early action can make all the difference.

So why not book your eye test today? Use our Locator to find your nearest SPECS network opticians.

And … don’t forget to enter our Road Safety Week free prize draw! 

As always, it’s easy and free to enter. We are giving away another one of our highly desirable iPads.

This competition closes at midnight on Sunday 24th November, so get your entry in now!
