The team at Allegro Optical are very excited after reaching the regional awards finals
No one could accuse us of standing still or let the grass grow under our feet. Here at “The musicians’ optician” we are getting very excited. Having opened nearly two years ago in March 2017 we have again been shortlisted for a plethora of business awards. Our family-run business, which employs seven family members across 2 generations, has been shortlisted for the regional finals of the Family Business Of The Year Awards 2019.
In addition to the family business award, Allegro Optical has again reached the regional finals of The Federation of Small Businesses FSBAwards. This time we have been shortlisted as finalists in three categories. The three categories are Start-up Business of the Year. Scale-Up Business of the Year and the Product and Innovation category for our unique musicians’ lenses.
Our co-founder, Dispensing Optician Sheryl Doe scooped The Entrepreneur of the Year Award
in June for her work in the field of musicians eye care. She also reached the National finals of the Dispensing Optician of the Year, one of only three opticians in the UK.
Going that extra mile
Allegro Optical has gone from strength to strength and built up an enviable reputation locally. The group now employs 16 people across two practices in Meltham and Greenfield in Saddleworth. We are always investing in our team and equipment. Either upgrading or buying new equipment to provide our clients with the very best service.
The Meltham practice now offers additional 3D OCT screening with our new 3D OCT eye scanner. A non-invasive test which can detect the early signs of many conditions including Age-related Macular Degeneration. The practice also has a state of the arts colourimeter which is used to assess and treat visual stress which is often linked to dyslexia.
It’s not unusual for children and adults to suffer from visual discomfort when they are reading. It is estimated that approximately 5% of the population is affected quite severely by visual stress and 20% to a lesser degree. Our 5 stage process allows the optometrists to screen for visual stress and create a suitable treatment plan.
Value for money
Allegro Optical is known for our FREE 2nd pair offer. This applies to children as well as adults providing them with two free pairs of glasses with an NHS optical voucher. If you would like to make an appointment call Greenfield on 01457 353100 or Meltham on 01484 907090.
