The team at a Derby opticians are in the frame for a national award.


Specsavers in the Intu Centre is one of four opticians shortlisted for the Contact Lens Practice of the Year category in the Optician Awards 2020.  Judges selected the store on its clinical, commercial and community attributes. The shortlisting builds further on the store’s success after it was named Practice of the Year at the Association of Optometrists Awards in January.


A word from the store director

‘We got the news back in February of this year that we’d been selected as a finalist, but then the pandemic put the final on hold which was due in April,’ comments Specsavers Derby store director, Uan Gohil. ‘The awards are now running online at an event on Wednesday 9 December, so we’re keeping everything crossed for the night.


‘It’s been a challenging year for so many businesses, and so to have been shortlisted and achieve this recognition is especially poignant given our team’s continued dedication and commitment.’


The Optician Awards 2020 will be premiered live at 7.00 pm on 9 December 2020, for all to watch free of cost to celebrate excellence in optics.
