As you may know we have been working with Specsavers across the last few months - to promote eye tests and all things eye care related at their stores. We now have a special thread running across the week with some great prizes to be won..!

Answer the questions and solve the clues to unscramble a word and you'll be entered into a prize draw to win one of three great prizes: £500 of holiday vouchers, an iPad mini or a DAB radio!

Each day a new clue will be added and on Friday the link to how to enter will also be posted. You just need to collect the first letter of each clue and re arrange them to get a word which is the correct answer. No posting the answers on the thread please grin. The word is 5 letters long and is a commonly used abbreviation.

Three of the clues lead you to a page on MN and as an extra clue there will be a hidden Specsavers image on those pages (see box for the image to look out for). Two of the clues are just quiz style questions to guess the correct answer.

Clue 1 - Monday
What are good to wear on your face to protect your eye's when the sun's out?
Hint - they are dark and make you look cool!

Clue 2 - Tuesday
What do Specsavers focus (gettit) on and offer examinations of?
Hint - balls!

Clue 3 - Wednesday
What is the proper name for age related long sight?
Hint: look here

Clue 4 - Thursday
Where would you start a thread about a health issue concerning your children?
Hint: the clue's in the question!

Clue 5 - Friday
Want some advice from MNers on what frames to get - where would you head to discuss this on Mumsnet?
Hint - it's fashion darlink!

Enter the competition (here) and you will be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a £500 Thomas Cook holiday voucher, one MNer will win an iPad mini (worth £239) and one will win a Pure Evoke DAB Radio (worth c£150)

Standard Insight T&Cs apply. Closing date for entries on the entry form only Tuesday 5th May 9.00am

Good luck!

Don't post the answers on the thread no comment if correct or not - just save the answers in a blank email or something and then keep checking each day for the next clue! grin
