Congratulations to store director, Kiran Liladhar who celebrates 20 years at Specsavers.

Great milestone

Kiran said: 'Wow - 20 years! I can't quite believe that I've reached this anniversary as the time has flown by. I've seen many changes during this time. Basingstoke as a town has really flourished commercially and the retail offer is great for the local community.'

Optical and hearcare innovations

Not only has the city evolved, but so has the technology and the choice of fashionable frames at Specsavers Basingstoke. 

Kiran said: 'Today, we have amazing equipment that can provide a really thorough eye health check. We can help dectect the early signs of preventable sight loss conditions and also, wider health issues such as indicators of high blood pressure, diabetes and rarer conditions such as a brain tumour. 

'That's why a sight test every 2 years is paramount. We also have a fantastic range of designer frames such as a Kylie Minogue exclusive collection and well loved brands such as Gant, Love Moschino, Superdry and Diesel. 

'Our collections suit everyone - from toddlers up to grandparents - and that's the essence of what makes me love my job still today:  helping customers from all walks of life, regardless of their needs, age and budget.'
