Ranna is an optometrist and director and has worked for Specsavers for 20 years since the Hounslow store opened in 1994. At the age of 10 he moved to Hounslow and has lived there ever since.

Working as a partnership

Ranna also works in the Glaucoma Clinic at Moorfields Eye Hospital and has set up a partnership with the hospital which allows graduate optometrists to train at the Hounslow store.

Career progression

Ranna said: “I love to see junior staff progress their careers, going from work experience to Qualified Dispensing Opticians or future Store Directors.”

A love of sport

Ranna’s favourite sport is football. He has played every week for 30 years at a local school in Hounslow, and he also cycles to work every day rain or shine, and has done since the store opened.
