Specsavers Drogheda is celebrating 21 years in business having proudly served the people of Co. Louth since the store opened in August 1995. Store Directors David McCloskey, Fiona O’Donnell and Kerril Hickey along with a team of experienced optometrists, audiologists and highly trained staff are an integral part of the community, providing exceptional optical and hearing services along with stylish yet affordable eyewear.

Milestone

Speaking of this milestone, Store Director David McCloskey said: ‘We are very proud as a team to be celebrating 21 successful years in business and I am delighted to say that I have been here since we opened in August 1995. In that time the store has grown significantly and we have undergone a number of improvements so that our store boasts the latest in optical and hearing technology.

David continues ‘We would like to thank the people of Drogehda who have supported us from the beginning and our wonderful customers for their continued loyalty. We look forward to serving the local community and continued growth and success over the coming years.’

State of the art facilities

Specsavers Drogheda is a state-of-the-art optical facility boasting three optical testing rooms. The store has also invested in sophisticated optical technology such as Digital Precision Eyecare, a cutting edge new way of selecting and fitting customers’ glasses using imaging software on tablet devices, and a fundus camera which can detect a variety of health problems such as diabetes, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.

In addition to being experts in eye health, Specsavers Drogheda also specialises in hearing with a dedicated hearing room complete with a soundproof booth to ensure the most accurate results when conducting hearing tests. There is an on-site hearing centre, overseen by Audiologist Jeff Walbarn.

Experience

Since opening at Drogheda Town Centre in August 1995, Specsavers has expanded from a staff of five to 21, which includes two full time opticians and one audiologist. Between them the Store Directors David McCloskey, Fiona O’Donnell and Kerril Hickey have over 40 years’ experience working in Specsavers Drogheda so local customers can rest assured that they are receiving the highest standard of professional care. With rigorous training programmes in place for staff and investment in the best technology available, Specsavers is always striving to improve its service for the people of Drogheda.
