OPSM – now open in Hurstmere Road, Takapuna Beach

Ashreet Nath, Optometrist, has recently returned to Auckland after practising with OPSM in Adelaide for four years. The experience of working with OPSM's cutting edge eyecare technology and great eyewear brands ignited a spark that made him decide to be become an OPSM franchise owner. In a move that's great for local business, Ash has decided to take on the new OPSM store in Hurstmere Road opposite the Post Office in the heart of Takapuna.

Ash grew up in Auckland and was keen to return home to start a business that aligns with his passion for providing the best eyecare possible. Being the franchise owner also means that he will provide consistently high level of eyecare and will be the regular optometrist in the store whenever you need him. Ash is always happy to help, if you have any questions about your vision or your eyes he is more than happy to answer these questions for you.
"Everyone regardless of age needs to have their eyes checked every one to two years," says Ash. "Eye health is something we can easily take for granted so we only tend to check our eyes when our vision changes. However, most eye diseases like glaucoma may not obviously affect vision until it's too late. Eye health education is my passion and the best way to prevent and treat anything is to detect it early."
Sharon Yun, qualified Dispensing Optician and a key member of Ash's team, has been working in the industry, locally, for the past nine years.
"As an Optician, it is very important for me to understand our customers' lifestyle and work environment through conversation so I can offer the best solutions for each individual," explains Sharon. "The combination of a flattering frame and custom made lenses make for perfect vision. This is where our OPSM Accufit technology comes in. Accufit aligns the face, lenses, eye, prescription and lens relationships to provide the most crisp vision.
Ash says he is thrilled with the central site in Takapuna. "An advantage to being on Hurstmere Road is our customers are able to try their eyewear especially sunglass lenses outdoors to get a true feel of the lens and appreciate the true colour of their frame in natural light. Artificial light and natural light are two different things and it is important to trial sunglasses in natural light outdoors before buying them. Most of our customers also get to trial their new prescription by looking at street signs, car number plates and shop signs.
I am a kind of person that needs explanations as to why this product is beneficial for me and my lifestyle. I think our customers expect the same thing."
OPSM Hurstmere Road stock all the leading brands, including RayBan, Versace, DKNY, Burberry, D&G, Prada, Ralph Lauren, Dolce & Gabbana.
