Having provided eye care for Leicester Riders basketball, Leicestershire County Cricket Club and Leicester City Football Club, Edmonds and Slatter have now branched their sporting eye care out to include swimming.
James Davies is a young patient at Edmonds and Slatter Opticians who trains with and competes for the City of Leicester Swimming Club. He is classed as an elite young athlete and is a Sports Ambassador for his high school. Within his age group James is currently ranked 3rd in the country for his 1500m freestyle.
Amy Coleburne, Dispensing Optician commented “James and his family are regular patients at our Blaby practice and when we found out about his incredible hard work and dedicated training schedule we wanted to help if we could” she continued “James swims for 14 hours a week as part of his training. This includes getting up at 5:15am before a full day of school to train. That early start shows a lot of dedication to me even before the hard work of swimming has commenced!”
Edmonds and Slatter presented James with a set of Competition Quality Swimming Goggles to assist him with all his training. If you would like any swimming goggles, with or without prescription lenses, please contact Edmonds and Slatter Opticians in Blaby, Glenfield or Lutterworth where they will be more than happy to help you.
