Liverton Opticians’ Style Event, held just before Easter was a great success with over forty guests attending.
The focus of the evening centred on Team Oarstruck – a group of four local lads who are entered for the Talisker Whiskey Challenge, when they will row across the Atlantic raising funds in the process for Diabetes UK. The target is to raise £50,000 for the charity by way of sponsorship, both commercial and from the public.
Liverton Opticians presented the boys – Monty, John, Hugo and Joel – with Julbo sunglasses, courtesy of the Lenstec Optical Group. The boys chose from the Wave range, which provides all-round protection for life on the water. Fortunately they also float!
Liverton Opticians have recently installed the latest Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) a three dimensional imaging technique that can pick up the slightest abnormalities, including diabetes a major cause of sight loss in the UK. This is offered to everyone as part of the eye examination at no additional cost.
A further development has been the introduction of audiological services from the Charles Street practice in cooperation with RG Hearing, a local family business. RG Hearing will be producing unique and personal ear plugs for Team Oarstruck, moulded specifically to the boys’ ears to protect them during their Atlantic challenge.
