Specsavers Fox Valley offering free eye tests throughout March to celebrate opening

19 March 2020

Following the launch of a £350k brand-new Specsavers in Fox Valley, the store’s directors are offering free eye tests for all throughout March to spot any sight issues with the local community.
 
The 1,500 sq. ft. store, which is situated on a former 28-acre steelworks site in Stocksbridge, opened its doors earlier in the month, welcoming the local community to take a look around. 
 
Attended by the Mayor of Stocksbridge, the event formally kicked off with a ribbon and cake cutting before a series of entertainment, which included: a performance from local guitarist Graham Lindley, face painting and a lucky dip. 
 
Creating nearly a dozen local jobs, the new team, who bring a combined 25 years’ optical experience between them, will be headed by the store’s directors Humma Khalid and Hitesh Patel. As well as experience, they hope to help the town’s residents with all their sight and hearing issues by investing in new technology, including an OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) machine.
 
Humma Khalid, Ophthalmic Director at Fox Valley comments: ‘When we set out to launch Fox Valley earlier this year, Hitesh and I had the eye-care of the region’s residents front of mind. That’s why, to celebrate our opening, we’re offering free eye tests this month for all.’
 
Retail Director, Hitesh Patel adds: ‘We’re delighted with the store launch and can’t wait to show off the brand new tech we have in-store. The technology allows our optometrists to look deeper into the eyes than ever before, spotting and treating eye conditions sooner.’
 
As well as eye tests and hearing checks, the new store will provide a wide range of optical and audiology services, equipped with three test rooms as well as a sound-proofed audiology booth. 
 
The store boasts a £40k OCT machine. Usually found in hospitals, the technology allows optometrists to look deeper into the eyes than every before and can help detect treatable eye conditions sooner.
