Spec-Savers is offering free glasses to children aged 6 to 12, this is the info you need


Spec-Savers has helped nearly 200 000 children through their Kids Right to Good Sight initiative and this is how they can help your child.


Spec-Savers has been giving children between the ages of 6 and 12, free glasses since 2008. We first heard about this initiative last year when one of the mom’s in our office took her son to our local Spec-Savers to get his eyes tested.

She came back to the office in absolute shock. She had expected to spend a fair amount of money on the entire ordeal but she was beaming with excitement beacuse it was all free. Her son, a 6-year-old cutie-pie, got his glasses a week later and looked so adorable the whole office was oo’ing and ah’ing at him.

It is really simple to get an eye test for your child. All you need to know is below.
