Father Christmas stopped off at Specsavers in Inverurie this week to receive a pair of free glasses before heading off on his way to prepare for Christmas at the North Pole.
The optician donates a pair of glasses every year to Santa Claus, helping to ensure that he gives each child the correct present on Christmas Day.
Specsavers store director, Ashleigh Wood, said: "We are so delighted that Santa was able to take time out of his busy schedule to visit us here in Inverurie.
"After trying on a few pairs, he settled on a classic gold-rimmed round frame so he can see perfectly throughout the busy Christmas period."
Father Christmas added: "A huge thank you to Specsavers Inverurie for my new glasses. Thanks to the kind staff at the store I’ll have no problem seeing where I am going when I am directing Rudolph and the sleigh!"
