Essilor has announced the launch of its Take Two multipair promotion for independent practitioners to offer families ahead of the back to school season.

Available between August 1 and November 30, parents will be able to choose any Crizal lens and get a free pair for their child from the Airwear junior range with Crizal Easy UV or Crizal Prevencia lenses.

Tim Precious, managing director of Essilor Ltd, said: ‘Our promotion will encourage families to visit their local optician before children head back to the classroom after what’s been an extra-long period away for many pupils.’
