We are proud to announce that Edmonds & Slatter become official eyecare providers for the Leicestershire and Rutland County Football Association. The award-winning independent opticians are no strangers to sports vision as they are also the current eyecare providers for the Leicester Riders basketball team and Leicestershire County Cricket Club.
Tim Cole, Director of Edmonds and Slatter, commented: “It’s often taken for granted, but your vision plays a huge part in any sport. It’s essential to all athletes where clarity of vision can make the difference when making a fraction of a second decisions.” He continued, “Timing, aiming, balance, and consistency are all affected by vision. A footballer who can focus quicker or have better depth perception and peripheral awareness will have an edge over his opponents. This can make all the difference in the sporting field.”
He added, “Having clear vision means that you should be able to see the ball well, but what if your opponent sees the ball before you or tracks the ball better than you can? You’re immediately on the back foot, and they have the edge. Our aim at Edmonds and Slatter Opticians is to get the best out of your vision so you can get the best out of your performance.”
Joe Dunmore, CEO at Leicestershire & Rutland County FA added: "We are delighted to announce our partnership with Edmonds & Slatter, who are already trusted by Leicester Riders and Leicestershire Cricket. We are excited to helping provide the very best eye care services to our football community over the upcoming season.”
The partnership with Edmonds and Slatter Opticians will cover all levels and members of the LRCFA, including employees, referees, coaches and players. With the optical team raring to go, it looks like this partnership will be a winning combination.
