Specsavers in Ebbw Vale has invested a massive £100,000 on refurbishing the store and installing the latest state-of-the-art optical equipment.

State-of-the-art equipment

The store is now equipped with a Fundus eye camera, which takes digital retina photography to test for tumours, glaucoma and diabetes, as well as a field screen to test for any eye-health concerns relating to a patients peripheral vision. The Ebbw Vale store is now accredited to offer DVLA standard sight tests, and also has a LCD television screen that is used to carry out optical tests such as Snellen eye charts.

In addition to this, the store now has four treatment rooms, new fixtures and fittings including new designer stands and frame launches, and is operating as a paperless practice.

A significant improvement

Andrew Sutton, director of Specsavers in Ebbw Vale, says ‘I’m delighted to see the investment at the store has made such a significant improvement to the services we are now able to offer our customers.

‘We’re able to share the initial results of an optical test with our patients straight away, ensuring that any eye-health concerns or queries are discussed and supported by the visuals on our screens.

‘We’re providing a slicker service with an impressive array of equipment to support us, and an extended range of designer frames for our customers to choose from. The importance of eye health cannot be underestimated, and we’re delighted to welcome our customers back into the newly refurbished store!’
