An optical specialist based in the Blackburn BID (business improvement district) has invested in a new state-of-the-art eye examination machine providing customers with the opportunity to access specialist outpatient services at the practice.
Long established opticians, Tyrrells and Embery purchased the Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) machine to offer advanced preventative examinations to customers. Head Optometrist Tyrrells, Haroon Ahmed, said: “With the OCT, eye specialists can see much deeper into the eye and detect preventable diseases earlier on such as Macular degeneration, Glaucoma and Retinal detachment – all of which can lead to blindness.”
The practice on Darwen Street works alongside local private hospitals and the NHS to provide in depth eye examinations.
Mr Ahmed added: “Together with our extensive clinical expertise and use of the best and most advanced clinical equipment, people have the confidence that they will receive the highest possible level of eye care.”
Manager of the Blackburn BID, Harriet Roberts welcomed the investment, she said: “It is great to see Tyrrells and Embery investing in the latest equipment to attract customers looking for outstanding customer service and specialist knowledge in the town centre.”
