Omagh Specsavers opticians and audiologists is this year marking ten years looking after local optical and hearcare patient needs in the Omagh area.

Staff and patients celebrated together in March at a special fun packed ‘party’ afternoon in store featuring face painters, giveaways, eats and treats and balloon modelling.

Thank-you to patients

Donna Harbison said: ‘It was a wonderful opportunity to say thank you to local patients and customers. Last year we completed an expansion and refurbishment programme enabling us to offer additional clinics and services to patients including a weekly hearcare clinic.’

Development and progress

Outlining progress for 2017 Emma Finn said: ‘This year staff have also undergone dementia friendly training and two optometrists have completed professional glaucoma qualifications further developing our expertise.’

‘The past 10 years have gone by so quickly and we’re both very proud of how the optical store has developed over the decade, particularly with our additional hearing service.

'We’d very much like to thank all our staff, many of whom live locally and we look forward to looking after local patients both young and old for many years to come.’

Specsavers in Omagh employs 19 staff including optometrists, dispensing opticians, a store manager, lab technicians and optical assistants. The store has been awarded a ‘Platinum’ employer award and was also awarded the Northern Ireland Store of the Year by the Specsavers regional management team.
