Richard Payne has his eye on an even brighter future with Specsavers Hove after passing his Cert 4 qualification.
The Cert 4 course covers all aspects of optics, including contact lenses, types of vision, the anatomy of the eye, and advanced dispensing to customers.
The qualification provides a great springboard for anyone looking to attend university to become a dispensing optician in the future.
Richard, who has worked at the George Street store for nearly 6 years, has previously completed his Cert 3 qualification in his time there.
He currently works as part of the contact lens team, but has developed his role and skills over the years to support his colleagues throughout the store.
A word from the store manager
Adam Fuller, store manager in Hove, said: ‘Richard has worked really hard to pass his Cert 4, as he did to pass his Cert 3.
‘His plan now is look at the other opportunities that are available to him with us, which is brilliant news as he is an important member of the team. We look forward to supporting the next step in Richard's career.’
