The Specsavers stores in Bexhill and Hasting are committed to delivering a great service to customers with glaucoma.
That is why, ahead of World Glaucoma Week this March, some of the team at the stores in Western Road, Bexhill, and Priory Meadow Shopping Centre, Hastings, took the time to take an online training course developed by Specsavers and the International Glaucoma Association.
The training is designed to help retail teams in Specsavers stores assist glaucoma sufferers with their treatment by advising them on how to effectively administer eye drops, crucial for managing the condition.
Glaucoma is one of the leading causes of irreversible sight loss, but is often symptomless in its early stages. It is often detected for the first time through a routine eye test.
Committed to customers
Rob Lofting, store director at Specsavers Bexhill and Specsavers Hastings, said: ‘We are committed to developing ourselves to deliver the best possible service to all our customers. That is why we were so happy to be able to access this training, as it will allow us to offer an even better service to glaucoma sufferers.
‘Regular eye tests are vital in maintaining eye health, and can spot changes like the early stages of glaucoma. Early detection is really important, as sight already lost cannot be restored. So if you have not had an eye test for a while, you really should think about booking one today.’
