Optical Advisor

Optical Express at Thistles is looking to recruit a Optical Advisor on a full-time basis.

We’ve come a long way since the first Optical Express opened in 1991. From just one store, we’ve grown to more than almost 130 stores and clinics and have become the UK’s only complete eye care provider. From glasses and contact lenses to laser, lens and cataract surgery, we’re here to make poor vision a thing of the past for our patients.
Over £400 million has been invested in our clinics and in the most advanced technology, so it’s no wonder we’re the number one choice for laser eye surgery patients in the UK. Every week, our optometrists and surgeons help to transform the vision of thousands of people across the country.

Optical Express has more 5 star Trust Pilot reviews than all the other laser eye surgery providers in the UK combined; in fact, over 99% of our patients would recommend us.

• Completing ‘three way’ handovers.
• Accurately maintaining all manual and computerised customer records in accordance with Data Protection.
