Parents encouraged to get their children's eyes tested

Fri, 14 Sep 2018

Parents on the Island are being urged to get their children’s eyes tested.

Manx Blind Welfare Society and RNIB Isle of Man have partnered up with the Island’s opticians to highlight the importance of eye tests for children and to encourage parents and carers to get their child’s sight tested. 
All children who receive an eye test will receive their very own Nellyn the Bear (Manx for ‘Little Champion’).

Eye tests are free for all children under the of 16 and those under 19 who are in full-time education.

The Rotary Club has funded the initiative through the Lockington Marshall Trust which was established to aid Manx charitable organisations.
