Claire Johnson from Specsavers in Deal has received eye health training from Specsavers and the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

The course supports store teams to best assist customers with low vision in store, as well as broadening their understanding of advanced eye care services now available in high street opticians. At least one person in every Specsavers store in Kent is now an RNIB Ambassador, wearing a distinctive badge on their uniform featuring the charity’s new branding.

'really useful'

Claire, retail manager and RNIB ambassador at Specsavers in Deal, said: ‘This is a fantastic piece of training. I’ve always wanted to know more about the clinical side of eye health and this course has provided that in an accessible and engaging format. I found it really useful and I know it will be of great benefit to our customers.’

Important training 

The RNIB Ambassador training complements the skills held by Specsavers’ 3,500 optometrists, who have collectively completed almost 10,000 postgraduate accreditations in detecting and monitoring glaucoma, cataracts and other eye health conditions.
