An independent opticians in Ryde have launched a hearing care service to meet the increasing needs of the local population.
Ryde Opticians and Hearing Care, on Union Street, are offering a complimentary hearing health check to celebrate the launch, when the service is introduced on 17th September.
Fully-qualified audiologist Andrew Ince, with over 20 years’ experience, has joined the practice to lend his expertise to perform the audiology service. The Ryde team have also recently completed a training day, so all staff are now fully trained to assist patients in any information they need to guide them on their journey.
State-of-the-art hearing aids from all of the global manufactures are available at the practice, as part of the audiology offering. Along with a hearing check, the practice offers ear wax removal, hearing protection, hearing aids and lifetime aftercare as part of the service, provided in partnership with audiology business Amplify Hearing,
This expansion marks another exciting step for Ryde Opticians, following their return to an independent practice from Vision Express in 2018 and their merger with the Medical Eye Centre in August of this year.
Farzeen Khan, Director and Dispensing Optician at Ryde Opticians said:
“We’re incredibly excited to now be able to offer a service that not just cares for our patients’ eyesight, but for their hearing as well.
“We’d like to welcome Andrew to the practice; and who I know is fully committed to providing the same level of customer care that we pride ourselves in our eye care offering.
“As an independent, we believe we can provide a much more dedicated and personalised service, with team members who have the expertise to vary their care dependent on the needs of each patient.
“Our hearing is vitally important, not just for the older generations, but also those in middle age. What we really want to try and avoid is undetected hearing loss in those below the age of 50, so we hope this service can improve the overall health of the Ryde population.”
