With just over one week to go before we meet to celebrate this years Retail stars at the 10th Anniversary of the Reading Retail Awards, we find out a little more about Specsavers, a sponsor that has remained a firm supporter of the awards over the years.

Specsavers Reading are delighted to be supporting the Reading Retail Awards again in 2019.

The store is committed to supporting the local community, and views the awards as a great way to celebrate all the fantastic local and national retailers which make Reading such a great place to live, work and shop – and to increase footfall into the town.

Located in Broad Street, the locally-owned and run opticians and audiologists have extensive experience serving the eye and hearing care needs of local people. Retail Director Don Watts boasts over 15 years of service at Specsavers, whilst his partner, Optometrist Director Ravi Bhardwaj, was the very first appointed Optometrist for Specsavers by its founders, Doug and Dame Mary Perkins.

The store is open seven days a week, including late night opening on a Thursday at Broad Street.

Regular eye tests are crucial to keeping your vision healthy, and can also play a major part in identifying any problems with your general health. Unless you have been told to have one more often, you should get an eye test every two years, so why not book one today.

The Broad Street store boasts a state-of-the-art ocular coherence tomography (OCT) scanner, an advanced eye scanning system usually only found in hospital eye departments – that can help detect conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy earlier than traditional methods.

Specsavers Reading are committed to training and development, and to constantly improving the service they provide to their customers. Why not check them out for yourself and book an eye or hearing test today. You are sure to receive a friendly welcome!
