Specsavers in Driffield are pleased to welcome newly qualified optometrist Shaun Stephenson to the team, after he successfully passed the industry-leading Specsavers pre-reg training programme.

Shaun trained alongside staff in store and became the store’s latest optometrist in August this year.

Since then, Shaun has been settling into his new role and enjoying fulfilling his childhood dream.

Fascinating profession

Shaun said: ‘I carried out my first work experience placement at the age of 14 in my local opticians, and ever since then I knew I wanted to do optometry.

‘The role is the perfect balance of biology, physics and maths, which were all my favourite subjects at school – I find the profession absolutely fascinating!’

A word from the store director

Deryck Watts, store director at Specsavers in Driffield, said: ‘We’re very pleased to have been able to help Shaun realise his ambition and to be able to welcome him to our team at Driffield as a fully qualified optometrist.’
