Specsavers in Chelmsley Wood has invested in three new phoropters, a piece of equipment that anyone who has had a recent sight test in store will instantly recognise.


The new instrument allows opticians to test individual lenses on each eye during a routine sight test. While many retailers have closed under the new restrictions, England’s lockdown legislation allows opticians and audiology services to remain open as they are deemed essential healthcare providers.


Thanks to this investment, the store now boasts five fully equipped test rooms, making sight tests run both smoother and quicker. It is also faster and easier to clean phoropters compared to than the trial frames, which were used previously.


A word from the store director

“Not only is this a great investment for the store’s future, but it’s also great for helping us to provide the best possible eye care to our customers,’ commented Specsavers Chelmsley Wood store director, Suki Drake. ‘Our new phoropters will allow us to treat customers quicker and more efficiently, so we’re delighted to have them in store.’
