Reflections of 2022

Reflections of 2022

And just like that, 2022 is over! What an amazing year it’s been, we have accomplished so much over the course of the year, from introducing new eyewear brands to purchasing new advanced technology, and it couldn’t have been done without the continued support of patients, friends, and family of Webb, Lucas, and Stubbs!
Let’s take a look back through 2022 and the amazing milestones we have accomplished with you…

Designer brands and more…

Adding a French touch to our eyewear fashion with Morel and Lanvin frames was highly popular with customers throughout the year! Modern and unique frames from Lanvin Eyewear have added Parisian Luxury to our collections, while Morel’s chic and stylish designs bring new, urban chic looks that we didn’t know we needed!

 

Our children’s collection has also never been better! We added Etnia Barcelona kid’s frames to add an extra splash of colour and funky style and added durability to your little one’s eyewear wardrobe.

We also expanded our designer sunglass lens options by introducing brand new lenses from Shamir! These are tailored to each individual prescription to provide clear, undistorted vision and UV protection in the face of bright sunlight so you can enjoy sunny days at any time of year.

Equipment

We continued to grow with technology as part of our promise to dedicate high-quality care to all our patients by introducing Optomap ultra-wide field retinal imaging. This state-of-the-art, advanced technology allows our experienced Optometrists to take panoramic retinal images of patients’ eyes within seconds so we can detect the early stages of any eye conditions such as retinal detachments, glaucoma or diabetic retinopathy and advise the most effective treatment to stop any further permanent damage to your vision.

Optomap scans show 200 degrees of the back of your eye, compared to the traditional retinal imaging view of 45 degrees, meaning we can spot even the smallest changes in areas that weren’t previously visible. This can be booked as part of our advanced sight test, with results available immediately at the time of your scan when you come in for your appointment.

Events, events, and more events

We were thrilled to host many successful eyewear events over the year, showcasing some of our amazing brands!
At the first event of the year ‘A day at the Races’, we showcased Victoria Beckham, Lanvin, and Skaga frames and offered a special eyewear discount to attendees who ordered frames from these fabulous brands on the day.

Our Maui Jim and Rudy Project sports eyewear event back in June was a huge hit too! We were able to showcase our entire sporting and sunglass collections from both of these fantastic brands. Maui Jim change the way you see the world with their patented PolarizedPlus2 lens technology. Eliminating 99.9% of glare and enhancing colours along with blocking 100% of harmful UV rays and absorbing damaging HEV rays to protect eye health.

Back in September, we hosted our Tom Ford styling event where Adam, a lovely representative from this brand showcased the entire Tom Ford eyewear collection and gave complementary frame styling consultations to attendees!

Finally, we hosted an amazing Black Friday weekend sale where patients had the chance to get amazing discounts and deals on eyewear! A great time to purchase a fabulous designer pair of specs or sunglasses for less.

Staff celebrations

In July, Shelley our fabulous Optometrist celebrated 20 years of working at Webb, Lucas, and Stubbs! We are so thankful for all the work and dedication Shelley has provided us over the 20 years and hope for many more years with her as part of our team.

A huge congratulations to Emma too, who completed her course to become a fully qualified Dispensing Optician! We know her expertise will benefit our patients greatly when it comes to choosing the perfect pair of frames and lenses for their vision and lifestyle needs.

Our last and most proud milestone… each and every staff member here at our independent opticians in Stafford has been dedicated all year round to raising money for the incredible Fight for Sight Charity. This organisation is dedicated to funding sight loss research to help improve lives and we will continue to support them.

One of our patients, Adam, even successfully summited Mount Everest to raise money for this worthy cause back in May – a truly inspiring achievement that we are all so proud of. You can read more about his story here.
