Specsavers Ilford has just opened a new in store lab – which means that you may well now be able to get their glasses on the same day you order them.

The store, in the High Road, is the only optician locally to offer a same day collection service for glasses.

Quick and easy

As long as the store has lenses to suit your individual prescription in stock – and they have a wide range available – you will be able to collect them that day, potentially saving you another trip into town. And you will not have to pay any extra to get your glasses on the same day.

The new lab is part of a £70,000 investment in the store in the form of a full refit and new equipment.

A word from the store director

Mohammed Rehmani, optometrist director in Ilford, said: ‘We are delighted to be opening our new lab in store, because it will really make life easier for our customers.

‘We will now be able to get the vast majority of people who need single vision lenses their glasses on the same day.

‘If a prescription is more complicated, you may not be able to get their glasses on the same day – but we can still promise you a fast turnaround because we have a high tech lab on site, so why not give us a go.'
