“The players love the extra care they receive here at the Australian Open and the eye health care services provided to them and many of our staff by Specsavers will not only be much appreciated, but help raise awareness of the importance of regular eye testing.
“This is particularly important in our sport, when so much time is spent outdoors in the sun,” Tiley continued.
