Eye care provider Optical Express has opened the doors of a new clinic in the Norfolk market town, King’s Lynn. It’s the 7th brand new eye clinic the optical chain have opened this year in what is new territory for them, and the 22nd opening so far in 2013.
The decision to open in King’s Lynn came after a review of the number of enquiries Optical Express received throughout 2012 regarding laser eye surgery. With a population of just under half a million, thousands of people in the area requested information about the eye care provider’s services via their website last year.
The new clinic will offer a full range of eye care services, from glasses and contact lenses to surgical solutions including laser vision correction and natural lens replacement. Patients looking for a traditional solution will benefit from great offers on glasses such as a free second pair to give to a friend, or complete glasses starting at only £49. Patients who join the Optical Express contact lens direct debit programme will receive free glasses and save 50% off the cost of designer sunglasses.
For anyone who is looking for an alternative to their glasses and contact lenses, Optical Express is the number one provider of laser eye surgery in the UK, so they are perfectly positioned to advise patients on what eye care options they have.
King’s Lynn Clinic Manager, Linda Brand said:
“The new Optical Express is a great addition to King’s Lynn, it’s a one stop shop for those seeking any eye care solution. The team here can assess a patient’s vision requirements, discuss their lifestyle with them and agree upon what form of eye care solution is going to be best suited to them. We’ve been open for a month now and already we’ve welcomed many new customers.”
Optical Express expects to continue a rapid expansion plan throughout the year and widen its eye clinic portfolio.
“We have identified a significant demand for laser eye surgery in certain regions throughout the UK and we are concentrating our immediate expansion efforts in these locations. We had an ambitious growth strategy for the start of 2013 and it is extremely satisfying to see our plans come to fruition. I look forward to our continued success and I hope our patients are just as satisfied with their Optical Express experience” said David Moulsdale, Optical Express Chairman and CEO.
