Specsavers Appoints Claudia Rojas as Head of Opticianry with Aim to Hire 400 Opticians by 2024
To ensure clinical excellence, Specsavers has set out to build the largest network of opticians in Canada.
This is because Specsavers believe opticians are crucial to providing high-quality patient care, as they directly and significantly influence a patient’s quality of life.
Leading the charge is Claudia Rojas, Head of Opticianry, Specsavers Canada. Claudia has over 20 years of experience working as a licensed refracting optician and has made tremendous strides in the optical industry. With her commitment to promote eyecare and eye health awareness, Claudia has served on the College of Opticians of British Columbia and is currently the Vice President of the Opticians Association of Canada (OAC) and President of the OAC’s British Columbia Chapter.
“In my new role as Head of Opticianry, I am guided by my commitment to promote eyecare and eye health awareness,” said Claudia Rojas, Head of Opticianry at Specsavers Canada. “I look forward to broadening our network and ensuring opticians feel relevant, important and appreciated, as they are integral to the eyecare industry.”
Specsavers aims to have at least one optician present at all optical stores, at all times, to mentor eyecare consultants and optimize patient care.
“Opticians are integral to the delivery of Specsavers’ purpose, which is to provide accessible, quality eyecare and affordable eyewear,” said Bill Moir, General Manager of Specsavers Canada. “With Claudia at the helm, we’ll continue to support, train and mentor opticians to provide the best care possible, for example, using our OCT scans as a standard part of pre-test and our range of quality eyewear and advanced lenses, to best serve their patients.”
Specsavers is committed to offering its retail team career-progression plans to become licensed opticians and contact lens practitioners through a sponsorship program currently in development.
