In the community

It’s important for everyone to look after their eyes. People aren’t always sure why or how, which is why our founder Moin Valli is happy to give educational talks to groups in the local community.

All talks are tailored to suit the audience. Moin has engaged with all age groups from the children at Honley Infants School to the Young At Heart (over 60s) group at Huddersfield Christian Fellowship.

To book or find out more about a talk for your school, community or business group contact your friendly local opticians today.
