I set up EYEYE for people who are looking for better eyecare and eyewear. I've done various other jobs over the last 25 yrs and try to bring that wider experience into running our store.
We're different to other opticians, we take our time, we don't sell you stuff you don't need, we wear jeans in the winter and shorts in the summer. We make bad jokes.
Our aim is that you enjoy coming to us and feel you have been looked after properly. That's it.
I've loved being an optical consultant from the moment I started. It is great making it personalised for each individual and I like being seen as a helping hand rather than a sales rep.
Here at EYEYE I know the customer and myself will receive that first name basis, friendly, comfortable vibe that makes work feel so worthwhile.
It couldn't be more different than working in one of the big multiples with all the sales targets..
I love working at EYEYE as it has such a great energy. I look forward to coming to work (and not just to look at new glasses on the sly, but that too!).
The pricing and ordering is so simple, so I can focus on helping people find something they love.
Doing all the health checks is very rewarding too. I also enjoy getting to have a chat with other Sheffield folk as well as Alison and Karl.
