The local Beeston community are set to benefit as Specsavers launches its newly refurbished store.

With a celebration planned for next month to coincide with the store’s ten-year anniversary, the larger, more high-tech environment will provide customers with the very best in optical and audiology.

Investment in Beeston

The refurbishment has seen significant investment made in new optical technology and staff development, which will mean a higher quality of service for Beeston locals – at no extra cost.

Store director, Krishna Parmar said: ‘We have put a huge amount into the store to entirely remodel it, making it more visitor-friendly and ensure we are passing on the latest technology. 

‘We’re coming up to our tenth year, and in that period we have seen huge advances in optics – it’s the right time for us to upgrade the store to make sure that we are at the forefront of delivering excellent eyecare.

‘We really care about the community that supports us, and we see our newly refurbished and upgraded facility as just one way we can make sure we can look after the people of Beeston.’

High-tech store

The re-fit will include the addition of an extra optical test room, increasing the store’s testing capabilities, and a new staff room. It will also be designed around Specsavers’ unique ‘iHarmony’ model, which ensures that customers have a seamless and stress-free journey through the store.

There will also be an entire upgrade to the store’s optical technology. The latest equipment will be available to all customers during their eye test at no extra cost. The equipment allows the optician to view the structures of the eye in detail to monitor for diseases or eye conditions which may only be picked up by internal symptoms.

Customers can also expect to have their frames fitted using the latest digital precision technology on tablets in store. Digital Precision Eyecare uses imaging software on a tablet to take an image of the customer wearing the glasses, which in turn captures a range of essential dispensing measurements. 

A specialist team

‘An eye test isn’t just about a prescription check,’ said Krishna. ‘Our team are qualified to detect minor eye conditions, including glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration, as well as providing treatment and advice about managing these conditions.

‘It’s important that the team is developed and we ensure that their professional and clinical qualifications are constantly being progressed.'
