The Fishermen’s Mission, in partnership with Vision Express, are offering fishing men and women the opportunity of a free eye test.

The scheme is being funded by Trinity House and it will provide a free eye test at one of nearly 600 Vision Express stores in the UK.

The Fishermen’s Mission says “As you know all too well, the sea can be an unpredictable place. Don’t make it even more unpredictable by going out to sea with imperfect vision. You already have one of the UK’s toughest and most dangerous jobs, so don’t be one of the 14 million people in the UK who fails to have a regular eye test.”

If the test shows you need glasses, you are entitled to a free frame and prescription lenses from the Vision Express £39 range.

Alternatively, Vision Express will give you £45 off a pair of prescription glasses from any other range. You can also choose to upgrade your frame or lenses by paying the difference.

To find out more please contact Carol Elliott or Sophie Davies on 01489 566 910 / 07486319621
