Recycling specs for better eyesight for children and adults

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

Meg Munn MP recently visited Martyn Kemp Opticians on City Road to donate a box full of spectacles which had been collected by her staff. The spectacles are recycled in an environmentally sound way and raise much needed funds for Vision Aid Overseas.

Regular eye sight tests have long been advocated by Meg, who encourages drivers to consider whether their eye sight would still meet the legal requirements for safe driving.  She started her campaign after she was contacted by a constituent whose niece tragically died following a road accident, caused by a driver whose eyesight was not up to the required standards.

Meg said:

“Wherever we live in the world good eyesight is important which is why I was delighted to support Vision Aid’s campaign. Recycling spectacles helps to raise vital funds for their work. 

The charity estimates that around 13 million children are visually impaired because they don’t have spectacles.  I hope this donation will help their work, providing access to eye care and spectacles for children and adults.”
