Balbriggan Pupils Enjoy Insightful Time At Specsavers

Specsavers BalbrigganPictured are teachers and pupils from Balbriggan Educate Together National School, together with Specsavers Balbriggan store manager Elaine Richardson and store director Brian Brodigan

The team at Specsavers Balbriggan was delighted to recently welcome pupils from the local Educate Together National School, where they learned all about being an optician and audiologist, and the inner workings of an optical lab.

Over two days, 40 pupils were given a guided tour of the lab from store director, Brian Brodigan and store manager Elaine Richardson.

This group of young aspiring optometrists and audiologists learned how the professional team conduct eye and hearing tests on customers. The children carried out mock eye exams and were then given the opportunity to try on glasses from the Specsavers’ kids range, from brands such as Disney, Emoji and Star Wars.
