Meet the Huntingdon team
Following an extensive refurbishment, Specsavers Huntingdon provides customers with state-of-the-art eyecare.
The store currently employs 21 members of staff who all live locally.
It is owned and operated by store director, Zuher Gulamhusein, who has over 20 years of optometry experience after graduating from Manchester University in 1994. Zuher has previously practiced optometry in Nairobi and spent three years in Melbourne where he completed his Masters modules in paediatric optometry.
The store offers customers a unique experience with 3D computer graphics to showcase the different lens options available with glasses. Two of the five testing rooms have wheelchair access and are fitted with the latest eye testing equipment.
The store is looking to the future with the addition of a new retail director in July. Simon Bingham will join the team and brings with him a vast amount of experience in the retail industry, in addition to three years at Specsavers. Simon’s appointment will allow optical director, Zuher more time testing patients.
Same day glasses service
The store has a fully operational onsite lab which enables staff to produce glasses with certain prescriptions on the same day.
The store’s hearing centre is open on a Thursday to accommodate all hearcare customers. This is available for anyone who might be concerned about hearing loss.
Children's eye tests
The store offers coloured overlay screening which can help children who experience learning difficulties. After an assessment has been carried out, a tint can be prescribed in a sheet of plastic which helps to aid children when reading.
Understanding the importance of good customer service and experience, Zuher has invested in his team over the years. It comprises of an ophthalmic director, store manager, dispensing optician, hear care champion, contact lens advisor, lab technician and several optical assistants. Each member of staff is fully qualified and equipped to service your needs.
