Quality Services

Jamie and Eamonn are committed to offering the very best optical and hearcare services to the local community. They have invested in the latest optical technology such as digital retinal photography and digital precision eyecare.

The Craigavon Specsavers team comprises two store director optometrists, a store manager, four optometrists, one dispensing opticians, four lab technicians and 17 optical assistants. Jamie and Eamonn continually invest in all of their team providing ongoing training to ensure staff are always up to date with the best health and style advice. They support local universities by regularly taking on pre-reg optometry graduates. Our current Pre-reg optometrist is Niamh McConville.

The Specsavers Craigavon service offer also includes glasses glazed within an hour in our onsite lab.

Hearing Centre

On alternate Fridays our audiologist Sue Carter provides comprehensive hearing tests which take an hour to complete. The store also offers free three minute ear screening seven days a week which can quickly identify if more testing is needed. The store directors are also investing in a new hearcare room which will open during November 2015 and staff member Nolagh Girvan is completing a hearcare qualification to enable her to support audiologist Sue Carter.
