Edmonds & Slatter become official Optical Partners

Leicestershire County Cricket Club is pleased to welcome Edmonds & Slatter Opticians as our official Optical Partners for the 2015 season.

The eye care specialists first provided support to the club during the 2012 season and recently tested the squad, following the ECB guidelines, at their branch in Blaby.

Each player also had widefield retinal screening carried out where a 200 degree digital photograph of the retina is taken for further examination.

Ned Eckersley, Matthew Boyce, James Sykes and Lewis Hill were among the players to go to Edmonds & Slatter, who also have branches in Glenfield and Lutterworth.

Eckersley said: “Edmonds & Slatter offer an extremely professional service and we are delighted to have them on board as our Optical Partners.

“It has been great to work with them during my time at the club. Having good eyesight is absolutely vital in our game so the players and I are delighted to get the expert advice and support of Edmonds & Slatter.”

Tim Cole, partner at Edmonds and Slatter, said: "We are very pleased to be able to offer our professional skills and exceptional services for the benefit of the club. I am most proud to be able to say that Edmonds and Slatter are the Optical Partner of Leicestershire County Cricket Club.”

* As part of the sponsorship, Edmonds & Slatter have become the most recent members of Leicestershire County Cricket Club’s brand new 1879 Club.
