Successful Expansion, Exciting New Practice Opens in Lymington
Wessex Optical, a franchise partner of Boots Opticians with locations in Dorset and Hampshire, is thrilled to announce the grand opening of its sixth branch. Situated in Lymington, this new practice is the largest in Wessex Optical’s history, boasting an expansive 4,000 square feet of space, complete with five rooms and a dedicated hearing care area.
The Lymington practice is all set to provide a wide range of testing and diagnostic services through multiple specialized clinics. This includes comprehensive eye examinations, expertly fitted contact lenses, post-care appointments, assessments, and treatments for dry eye conditions, as well as audiology services.
What sets this practice apart is its commitment to accessibility, offering services seven days a week, while also contributing to the local job market by creating 11 employment opportunities within the town.
The impressive expansion of the Lymington practice was made possible through a generous funding infusion of £500,000 from Lloyds Bank. This strategic investment is anticipated to substantially boost the business’s annual turnover from £4.5 million to an impressive £7 million.
Zabir Ali, the founder and owner of Wessex Optical, expressed his enthusiasm for this significant milestone, stating;
“We are thrilled to extend our presence into Lymington, marking our second new branch this year.”
He went on to emphasize the practice’s commitment to becoming an integral part of the local community, fostering the prosperity of the High Street, and, most importantly, enhancing the eye health of Lymington’s residents and those in the surrounding areas.
Zabir Ali also shed light on the practice’s focus on investing in cutting-edge optical testing, diagnostic, and treatment technologies. He explained, “With NHS services still in recovery mode post-pandemic, offering alternative specialist services on our High Streets is not only providing a vital service to communities but also alleviating pressure on the health service.”
As Wessex Optical expands to its largest site to date, Ali reflected on the journey, saying;
“Opening our biggest site yet hasn’t been without its challenges, but we are delighted with the results, which will make it easy for people in Lymington to take good care of their eye health, and, with a fantastic range of frames to choose from, look and feel great too.
