Delighted to be on the first step towards a great career in optometry is Samrina Awan.

Plymouth student gets experience at Bracknell store

Samrina joins another student, Raveena Sembi, at Specsavers in Bracknell for the summer months. Samrina is studying Optometry at Plymouth university and has completed her first year. 

Keen to get front line experience

Samrina, who lives in Slough, is thrilled to get first-hand experience at Specsavers. She is enjoying shadowing the opticians and observing the whole customer journey experience - from when a customer comes in for an eye examination right through to collecting their frames.

In her own words

Samrina says: 'There are many different elements to running a successful opticians and it's great insight to see how everyone works together to give the customer a seamless experience. 

'The eye examination is just as important as helping a customer select a pair of frames that they feel comfortable in, and that the quality is excellent too thanks to the hard work of the lab technicians who glaze lenses behind the scenes.  Coming to Specsavers in Bracknell has reinforced my belief that I've chosen the right career for my future.'
