Earlier this month, I visited my local Specsavers to have my eyes examined. It was well over due and although my eyesight hasn’t deteriorated since my last test, I needed to update my glasses and make sure the prescription was right for my eyes. I wear glasses for reading, working with a computer and any other short distance work. I took along my three year old for the experience, just like with the dentist it’s something I’m keen for him to see as routine and part of everyday life.
Whilst I was in the hot seat getting my eyes tested, Olly and his Daddy explored the store and found the children’s section. Olly doesn’t have any vision problems at all so he doesn’t need any glasses but once he saw the Disney Moana children’s range of glasses he wanted a pair.
Moana is the latest screen animation film from Disney and is set for release on 2nd December 2016. It follows the adventure of a young free spirited girl who searches for a legendary island to fulfil her ancestors wishes. Along the way she befriends a demigod and the pair have a vibrant adventure on the high seas.
Specsavers and Disney Moana have come together to offer the latest range in children’s glasses. There are four new frames in the range complete with Moana designs, each pair of glasses give a nod back to Moana’s Polynesian heritage with tribal prints and Pacific Ocean inspired designs.
Of course, Olly had to try them on and I think he looks absolutely adorable in them. He loved them (almost as much as he loves watching the Moana film trailer on the internet) and didn’t really want to take them off.
The Disney Moana frames are priced from £64 and come with flex hinges and scratch resistant lenses with a UV filter. Ideal eye wear for children who need to wear glasses. The Disney Moana range for children is now available in Specsavers stores and all under 16’s are entitled to a free NHS eye test.
As a youngster, I would have loved a pair of Disney inspired frames. I had to make do with a very pink pair of Barbie glasses which I hated so I’m very envious of younger children being able to be so stylish if they need help with their sight.

Disclosure: I was gifted a voucher for a free eye test which included a contribution towards some new glasses for myself. With thanks to Specsavers at West Bromwich for their help and advice.
