Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows seniors will be able to get their eyeglasses tended to for free thanks to a couple of upcoming clinics provided by Specsavers.

Each of these events will have an optometrist on-site to lend an expert hand, with a variety of eyeglass services provided free of charge.

Ultrasonic cleaning, nose pad replacements, eyeglass adjustments, and product giveaways are some of what can be expected at the pop-up clinics.
