In Jan 2018, Eyesite Opticians opened its first doors in North Lincolnshire, moving to Barton Upon Humber replacing a local store that had been in situ for 20 years.
Having been resident Optical Assistant in store prior to Eyesite’s arrival, Helen shared her thoughts on her new place of work one year on.
“It’s been great to work with some iconic luxury brands. To say a new world of eyewear has been introduced to me is an understatement! Bringing these collections to the area, has made the combination of great eye health care and luxury fashion very accessible to the people of North Lincolnshire. ”
Having already introduced many brands to Lincolnshire from Eyesites extensive roster, new store manager and qualified Dispensing Optician Amy has already seen positive effects this has had. But she highlights the importance of an eye test as the essential factor in the bigger picture...
“We want to the local community to ensure they are maintaining the health of their eyes and receiving regular check ups from our qualified optician. An eye test can detect much more than just poor vision and can also uncover other underlying health issues, so it’s important people don’t shy away from attending their regular check up! Eye tests are free for many people, so it’s always worth receiving your annual test at the very least. But beyond that, yes it’s good to see people, whatever gender or age, experiencing their glasses as much more than just an 'aid'. Having so many styles to work with, means our clients can be perfectly matched to the frame, sunglasses or contact lenses, that fits their style, lifestyle and personality. At the end of the day we want for those who require glasses to have the freedom and choice to find something they will actually love wearing.”
From all of the staff at Eyesite we would like to thank the residents of North Lincolnshire for making us feel so welcome in year 1; as we look forward to meeting, testing and styling many more faces in year 2! See you in store :)
