Inspired by the first-year anniversary gift of paper, Specsavers on Market Square will give all patients visiting on the day with a goody-tote bag including a £10 eye tests voucher, keyring and pen.

In addition, a prize draw will be set up with the winner being reimbursed the cost of any glasses purchased. Customers who pick up their prescription glasses between Tuesday 5 and Saturday 9 September will automatically be entered into the draw.

Since opening in September 2022 Specsavers Buckingham has carried out over 4,500 eye tests, including some that have led to life saving and sight saving treatment, with one patient being referred to a specialist with an undetected brain tumour.
