A North-Ayrshire practice has contributed to recycling more than 50 tonnes of spectacles and eye care materials, as part of an initiative between Specsavers and recycling company Mygroup.

The equivalent of more than one million pairs of unwanted spectacles have been donated to practices across the UK, since the initiative launched in August 2022.
