Free Eye Testing Software For Schools 

Good eye sight is vital during a child’s school years.  If a child cannot see the board properly, or words are blurred when they try to read, they will find it difficult to perform to their full potential.  Specsavers have teamed up with Thomson Screening to deliver free vision screening software for every primary and secondary school across the country.
