Duncan and Todd Group shortlisted for three Opticians Awards.
Posted on 19 February 2018
We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for three awards at the 2018 UK Optician awards.
Our Aberdeen based laboratory, Caledonian Optical, have been shortlisted for the Lens Product of the Year with our Arc Steady progressive varifocal lens. This award recognises lens products that have given patients and practitioners added value. We have invested in developing our lens technology taking the patients’ needs and wants into consideration. The result is Arc Steady our flagship varifocal lens design which we are delighted to have recognised as a finalist in this category.
The second award we have been shortlisted for is the Practice Growth Award for our J.M. MacDonald practice on the Isle of Skye. This category rewards practices who have undertaken activity that has had a profound impact on business. J M MacDonald in Portree, is a successful growing practice within the Duncan and Todd Group. It opened on Skye, in the Scottish Highlands in 2012. With the nearest opticians practice being in Inverness (113 miles away), and with a growing population, the group took the opportunity to open a second practice under the J M MacDonald name and utilise the lucrative business opportunities there. This award recognition is testament to the hard work that our practice manager Craig and the team have put into growing their business.
The third and final award that we have been recognised for is Contact Lens Practitioner of the year award for our Optom Jon Stewart from our 20 20 Opticians practice in Glasgow. This is the second consecutive year that we have been shortlisted for this award. Jon has worked tirelessly to change the lives of patients daily and embrace the concept of contact lenses.
We would like to thank all our patients and staff for the continued support that has allowed us to grow our optometry services over the years. The awards ceremony takes place in April so please join us wishing all our entrants the best of luck.
