Locally owned and operated, Specsavers Saltcoats takes pride in putting its customers first and aims to find the best fit, style, shape and colour of frame to suit.

The team at Specsavers on Dockhead Street is led by store directors, husband and wife, Al and Jennie Ferdinand alongside new store manager Lynn Johnson.

Following a six-figure investment in the store last year, Specsavers in Saltcoats has a refreshed interior which can display hundreds of frames. This includes Specsavers’ own ranges and exclusive designer collections, giving customers a wide selection to choose from – catering for a variety of styles and budgets.

Most recently, Specsavers launched a unique collection of glasses and sunglasses designed by students called Specsavers Design Collective.

What is Specsavers Design Collective?

There are 14 styles of frames in the unique collection created by four designers, namely Lydia Blackshaw, Tiffany Bachelet, Emily Hill and Joshua Teodoro. They entered Specsavers’ inaugural design competition last year, with their creations chosen from more than 140 entries to be sold exclusively at Specsavers.

Al Ferdinand, store director at Specsavers Saltcoats, said: ‘The Design Collective has been a fantastic addition to our selection in store and has proven popular since launching earlier this summer. It’s great to support fresh British design talent including the two Scottish designers and offer customers something unique.’

Specsavers takes pride in offering the best customer service experience possible and helping them find the perfect pair of frames is made easy with Frame Styler.

What is Frame Styler?

Specsavers’ unique in-store technology Frame Styler, is a facial recognition tool designed exclusively by Specsavers to give glasses wearers the confidence to find the right specs style for them.

The virtual try-on technology allows customers to see how they look wearing glasses from every angle, seeing themselves as others would see them. Working with in-store frame stylists, Frame Styler is used to take a scan of the customer’s face, analysing their face shape, examining their purchase history and marrying the results with the latest trends.

Al added: ‘We wanted to make it easier for customers who want to branch out with their style choices. Our Frame Styler technology uses an image of the face to work out what styles are best suited to any face shape.

‘Frame Styler identifies three distinct categories – whisper, talk and shout - helping to inspire our customers to experiment and broaden their perspective on what styles work for them.’
