23 year old Yameen Seedat is an optometrist at Specsavers in Wythenshawe, having worked for the company for almost three years.
During his time at university studying optometry, Yameen chose Specsavers in which to do his pre-registry year. He says: 'I remained with the company ever since as a result of the love and support I’ve felt from various levels within the company.'
When asked, Yameen cited the desire to make a difference as his main motivation in life. Thus it’s no surprise when he said the best part of his role as an optometrist is being able to put customers at ease when they come to him with their health concerns.
Yameen says: “As an optometrist at Specsavers Wythenshawe, my responsibility is not only to ensure your eyes are healthy, but to ensure no other health concerns can be spotted.”
'As well as making sure you can see, we can often pick up things like brain tumours, diabetes, and high blood pressure as well. Getting a sight test can actually be a matter of saving your life, that’s why I’m so proud of the work we do here in store.'
'No two days are the same, and no matter what challenges might arise, they can always be overcome.'
