British triathlete, Jodie Stimpson, has been one of the first people to try out the new technology on offer at Specsavers in Stourbridge.

The double Commonwealth champion popped into the store for a routine eye test, but was surprised to find out that she would experience a cutting edge new way of selecting and fitting glasses, using imaging software on tablet devices.

Terry Tam, director of Specsavers in Stourbridge said: ‘It was great to meet Jodie. She was very friendly and we were so pleased to be able to help her experience our new technology. This is very clever kit and has a real wow factor for customers. It’s a quick and easy process which ensures a perfect fit every time.’

Following her eye examination, the optical team assisted Jodie in selecting her glasses. Imaging software on a tablet was used to take an image of Jodie wearing the glasses, which in turn captured a range of essential dispensing measurements. These are unique to the customer and their chosen glasses.

Terry added: ‘The tablet can also be used to show you what you look like wearing a range of different glasses to help you make your choice. The intelligent software also helps you choose by any lens options you might want, by demonstrating what they do in real time.’

Digital Precision Eyecare is now available in all Specsavers stores in the UK and Ireland.
