Leading eyecare specialist Optical Express announced today that it will donate £1million of laser eye surgery to NHS and emergency services workers as part of its ‘Thanks a Million’ initiative.
The initiative follows a national survey by Optical Express that revealed that overwhelmingly, the great British public think that fire fighters deserve the most thanks for the hard work they do, along with nurses, doctors and the police force.
The survey, which looked into what makes British workers feel valued in the workplace, also revealed that a simple “thank you”, whether in person or over email, means more to most workers (38%) than a promotion (28%).
Optical Express has been performing vision correction surgery for over 15 years and has treated 1,000’s of people from professions where good vision is a defining factor in the employee being able to perform their job to the best of their ability.
Dawn Kondol, HR Manager at Optical Express, said:
“We’re delighted to be able to offer some of the UK’s hardest working people, including fire fighters, the opportunity to have laser eye surgery and achieve 20/20 vision free from glasses or contact lenses. Moreover, we’d like to acknowledge everything they do for the British public – who agree that fire fighters are among the most deserving of our thanks and appreciation.”
Optical Express is an industry leader in optics and refractive surgery and aims to truly change the lives of people with poor vision. Further to the £1million in surgery pledged, all NHS and emergency services workers will be eligible for 20% discount off laser eye surgery at Optical Express.
