Mansfield undergoes high-tech refit
Specsavers in Mansfield is undergoing a full store upgrade, which will bring the latest optical technology and enable the team to build on their high level of customer service.
New testing rooms
Store director Imogen Hoyle said: ‘We’re so excited by the upgrades and can’t wait to show off the new and improved store to our customers. We will have seven new testing rooms so that we can offer an increased level of service.
‘The refit upgrades the store in line with Specsavers’ revolutionary iHarmony model, which will ensure our customers have a smooth and enjoyable experience in store, as well as bringing new, high-tech equipment.’
The tech upgrades include the new Digital Precision Eyecare, which ensures that customers’ specs are tailored to their needs. Using software on a tablet, a range of essential dispensing measurements are captured that are unique to the customer and their chosen glasses.
Customers will also benefit from Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) technology, offered as a standard part of all eye tests from October.
The advanced eye scanning system can be used on all ages to help detect a number of eye conditions, such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy. OCT is similar to ultrasound, but uses light waves instead of sound waves to create a picture of the back of the eye.
The 3D scan will illustrate the different layers that make up the optic nerve and retina, and can be cross referenced with a digital photograph of the surface of the eye to pinpoint areas of concern.
New hearcare booth
The store will also have a brand new hearcare booth to incorporate hearing tests into the store’s services. The newly-qualified hearcare assistant will join two locum audiologists to provide a walk-in clinic once a week and appointments three days per week.
