The local community in Ross-on-Wye is set to benefit from improvements made to Specsavers which has undergone a complete facelift.

An extra test room has been added and customers will be able to take advantage of a new contact lens teaching area as well as a wider selection of frames, including designer and kids ranges. The re-fit has also allowed the team to expand, with the appointment of two new optical assistants, taking the total number of staff to 13.

Benefits for all 

Headed up by store director Lee Thomas, who has been at the helm for ten years, the store plays an important role in the community. ‘We’re delighted with our new look,’ said Lee. ‘The biggest benefit is the additional test room which has allowed us to offer more appointments to customers, giving them greater flexibility. We pride ourselves in offering the best possible eyecare service to local people and the re-fit will help ensure we can continue to excel in this area. We’re looking forward to welcoming customers old and new through the doors so please come and say hello.’  

Latest equipment 

Both sight test rooms are now fully computerised and the store has been kitted out with the very latest pre-testing equipment. A new cutting edge way of selecting and fitting customers’ glasses, using imaging software on tablet devices called Digital Precision Eyecare is also available. Following an eye examination, the optical team assists customers in selecting their preferred glasses. Imaging software on a tablet is then used to take an image of them wearing the glasses, which in turn captures a range of essential dispensing measurements. These are unique to the customer and their chosen glasses.

The store is open from 9am until 5.30pm Monday to Friday, 9am – 5pm on Saturday and 10am until 4pm on Sunday.
