The team at Specsavers has been working out of hours to ensure no vulnerable person is left with limited sight or hearing abilities - delivering up to 150 glasses and hearing aids.
For the time being, Specsavers stores throughout the UK have suspended routine eye and hearing tests, instead they’re offering “a new essential and urgent care service to ensure emergency issues are not left untreated.”
Craig Muress, dispensing director at Worksop, said: “With the country in lockdown, the team felt it was important that we do all we can to make sure nobody’s ear or eye health is put at risk during these difficult times.
“For many customers, particularly our older ones, leaving the house isn’t an option at all, and the thought of facing the next few weeks without the correct prescription glasses or hearing aids is extremely scary. The team here at Worksop have been more than happy to make deliveries after work and make sure no customer is left in the dark.
“Part of Specsavers ethos is that we’re here for people when they need us, and we’ll continue to do all we can to support the local community during the next few weeks. Customers with a current prescription can still buy their glasses and contact lenses online.”
