Specsavers recently opened its 325th Australian store in the Sydney suburb of Rhodes, New South Wales, which was shortly followed by the opening of its 326th store in the NSW town of Bega.

The two stores opened in May 2018, and both are fitted with the latest ophthalmic equipment, including OCT technology and visual fields facilities.

The 120sqm Specsavers Rhodes practice contains three consulting rooms, including one that is set up for audiology and optical dual-purpose use, dedicated pre-test facilities, three dispensing desks with stand-up contact lens teaching facilities, as well as a staff room and office.

Specsavers Bega is operating out of a 115sqm store, which includes two consulting rooms, a dedicated audiology clinic, pre-test facilities, three dispensing desks plus a sit-down contact lens teach facility, and a staff room and office.

Congratulations and welcome to Optical Partners Louise Chew and Antoin Rooney from Rhodes (both Pathway graduates); Optometry Partner Vivian Vuong and Dispensing Partner Lisa Redfern from Bega; as well as to their respective teams.
