In the past 10 years more than 62,000 eye tests have been conducted and more than 90,000 pairs of glasses and prescription sunglasses have been sold by the team at Specsavers Wagga.
Needless to say they are passionate about providing the community with expert customer service and affordable, yet stylish, glasses.
Co-owners, optometrist Anne Mill and dispenser Richard Skidmore, are focussed on encouraging the community to proactively schedule necessary health checks, including an eye test, as part of Eye Health Month.
Recent Specsavers research shows that Australians are putting their sight needlessly at risk with as many as two in three people over 40-years-old currently experiencing a problem with their eyes but failing to get their eyes checked by an optometrist.
“It’s essential to have your eyes tested every two years to track any changes in eye health that may be occurring, even if you aren’t concerned about any changes in vision or don’t wear glasses,” Anne said.
Specsavers Wagga and the new Specsavers Griffith store are offering all customers who have their eyes tested access to new technology, the OCT Diagnostic Scan, that can detect changes in layers of the retina not normally visible to clinicians.
“It’s revolutionising early detection and treatment of many eye conditions,” Anne said.
“It has been the biggest technological shift in eyecare in the past 10 years.”
