AS Specsavers Opticas celebrates its 10th anniversary in Spain this month, Fuengirola Store Director Amrik Sappal looks back on the history of this global group.
It is the Spanish branch of the world’s largest privately-owned optical group which has revolutionised the eyecare industry. Founded 31 years ago in the UK, Specsavers is now an international retailer with more than 1,600 stores across 10 countries, and is the third largest optical group in the world. Specsavers Opticas benefits from economies of scale by being part of this optical group, bringing low-cost, high-quality optics to the market.
When did Specsavers come to Spain?
The first Specsavers Opticas opened in Javea on the Costa Blanca in April 2006 to provide customers with quality, professional eyecare at low prices. Their qualified optometrists use the latest technology to provide a comprehensive eye examination, including digital retinal photography to capture images of the back of the eye. Digital Precision Eyecare technology is also used to calculate important measurements needed to fit your lenses.
How are you celebrating this 10 year milestone?
Specsavers Opticas in Marbella and Fuengirola will be offering free eye tests, special offers such as glasses for just 10€, and a chance to enter the popular Spectacle Wearer of the Year competition throughout April and May.
