The opening of a brand new eye clinic in the seaside town of Southport on 26th March marks the 31st opening for eye care chain, Optical Express this year! The new clinic situated in the prestigious Heritage House on Hoghton Street will offer the full range of eye care services that the optical provider is renowned for across Europe.
From designer frames and a full contact lens service to surgical procedures including laser eye surgery and natural lens replacement, the experienced team of Optical Express optometrists are on hand to offer the locals of Southport advice and information on which type of vision correction is right for them.
The new, state-of-the-art clinic is fully equipped with the latest technology. It’s positioned in the heart of the town and is easily accessible by car and public transport. The train station is a short five minute walk away.
Regional Manager for Optical Express Greg Wharton commented:
“The Southport clinic is in a newly refurbished building in a great location of town. We are perfectly positioned to offer the people of Southport our fantastic range of services and excellent clinical care. I’m looking forward to growing our business here and developing a reputation as the number one choice for eye care in Southport.”
With a population of around 100,000, Southport was identified by Optical Express as somewhere that would benefit from local access to the service offered by Optical Express, in particular free consultations for laser eye surgery. Previously locals would have travelled to Liverpool for such a service but now it’s right on their doorstep.
David Moulsdale, Chairman and CEO of Optical Express said:
“When we embarked on our expansion plans in early 2013, Southport was high on our list of priorities. It’s a great community and early signs are showing that we will thrive here. We already have Southport patients travelling to our Liverpool clinic so we have a good base to start from. I’m delighted to have created job opportunities here and I’m looking forward to continuing our success as we open more clinics in the coming months.”
