New Milton-headquartered Wessex Optical has purchased a new site in Romsey to expand its services and clientele. The 3,500 sq ft unit will be refurbished and fitted out as a new Boots Opticians and will open in November.
Wessex Optical’s new site in Romsey will offer eye tests, contact lens fitting and aftercare appointments, ophthalmology treatments, and specialist dry eye clinics run by hospital doctors. The company, with a yearly turnover of £3.5 million, currently employs 55 people, with a plan to add another 20 to the new site. Wessex Optical also has plans to acquire a sixth location and further expand down the South Coast.
Wessex Optical has four other practices in Bournemouth, New Milton, Weymouth, and Wimborne and has plans to purchase a sixth site down the South Coast in the future.
