Specsavers invited FC Halifax Town players for free eye tests ahead of today’s game against Forest Green Rovers at the Shay.
Halifax store director Phil Garbe said: “It is important for athletes to realise that eye tests are just as essential as any other health check.
“Visiting the opticians can be vital for detecting eye health problems early, as well as highlighting other health conditions.”
FC Halifax spokeswoman Debbie Chalton said the club ensured players were in the best physical condition and eye tests throughout their career were part of that and thanked Specsavers.
But, the way some of the decisions have gone in Town games this season many fans will be thinking its even more important that referees should be called in for eye tests - every week!
