Grantham Specsavers have generously thanked a 10-year-old with an iPad for her loyal and delightful custom.

Emily Hollis has overcome various problems with her eyesight since she was a baby. At just 12 weeks old, Emily underwent an operation to have cataracts removed. Aged two, she underwent another operation, this time to correct a squint.

Since then, despite her limited sight, staff at the Grantham branch have seen Emily progress from strength to strength. The store’s director, Bijal Ladva, said: “We have watched Emily grow up over the years and she has progressed so much. She is such a delight to have as a customer.”

Emily was nervous to start secondary school because she felt self-conscious about her bifocal lenses. Staff have since helped her adjust to varifocals which she is said to be ‘over the moon’ with.

Along with the new lenses, the store staff wanted to do something to help her transition to secondary school. The iPad will aid her development at school as it is able to connect to the class whiteboard and allow her to see more clearly.

“We thought we would thank her and her family for coming back to us each time Emily has needed treatment over the last 10 years,” added Bijal. “We wanted to do something that would help support Emily’s transition to secondary school - the iPad seemed the best choice.”
