Photo competition attracts striking images




A stunning selection of photos has been submitted to a competition to find an image which captures the beauty of the Harborough district.

Launched last month by Clinton-Smith Warren and Davis Optometrists, of St Mary’s Road, Market Harborough, and the Harborough Mail, the ‘Celebrate What We See’ contest aims to raise awareness of eye health.

So far the entries include a contemporary interpretation of Little Bowden Recreational Ground, a wintery scene featuring Gumley church and the rolling countryside next to Saddington Reservoir, while an image of ladybirds in the town’s Camsdale Walk has also been sent in.

With a deadline of October 31st, entries are still being sought. The winning entry will be printed, framed and presented to the winner and another copy will be hung in the opticians. The prize also includes a bottle of wine and a £50 eyewear voucher.

The competition was launched during National Eye Health Week (September 17th to 23rd). A total of 1.8 million people in the UK are living with sight loss but more than half of these could really benefit from a sight test and new spectacles. An eye test can detect early signs of conditions like glaucoma, which can be treated if found soon enough, while other health ailments such as diabetes or high blood pressure may also be detected.

 Kim Durden, a Partner Optician at Davis Optometrists, based in the town’s St Mary’s Road, said: “Routine eye exams are important – regardless of your age or your physical health. During a comprehensive eye exam, much more than just prescription for eyeglasses or contact lenses can be determined. Your eyes will also be examined for common eye diseases.”
