Specsavers has spent more than £450,000 transforming its store into a state-of-the-art optical and hearing facility. 

The store has unveiled its brand new look, which has been completely overhauled to improve the service it provides to the community. 

The major development has included increasing its number of tests rooms to eight, which will allow the store to perform up to 850 eye tests a week, as well as changing the layout of the store to improve the customer experience.

Jamie Buchan, store director of Specsavers Dundee, said: 'The refurbishment of the store has been a long time in the planning and we are thrilled with the result. 

‘We had the desire to grow the business - we were almost at maximum capacity and fully booked almost a week in advance. 

‘We looked at the whole store, both physically and operationally, and made major changes. All of this will allow our team to work smarter and more efficiently. 

'The technology in our test rooms is of the highest standard. We have digital slit lamps which allow optometrists to look at the surface and inside of the eye and record the image so they can monitor for any changes over time.'

More staff recruited
Specsavers has also increased its head count to 86, with six new members of staff taking on full and part-time roles. 

Jamie added: 'There is so much that can be detected from an eye test, including conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes. The equipment and technology installed in our store is the best in the industry so customers can rest assured they are in good hands.'
