An Outreach Appointment to Specsavers in West Sussex

Care staff supported a young person with a visit to Specsavers in Worthing. He wasn’t looking forward to this so we started with a visit to Costa to have a chat about his week, college plans, and the eyesight test.

Young person A said he really didn’t want to have glasses, I explained that glasses were very fashionable these days and there is a wide range of choice (I think this young person would look very stylish wearing glasses!) We then walked into town to Specsavers and their staff were fantastic and did their best to put young person A at ease. We had a very funny lady completing the eye test and young person A found her amusing. Young person A chose some lovely black thick-framed glasses, he wasn’t over the moon about needing them but understood why it would help him. Specsavers are currently offering a free contact lens trial so we enquired about this and they have ordered his prescription in for this, which is fantastic and it’s free! We will return with an update of the trial so stay tuned.
