It has taken a lot of hard work and dedication. He has now started a three-year course,to become a qualified dispensing optician via distance learning.’
Michael had worked in real estate and as a gym instructor before looking for a change in career. He has now been working for Specsavers Ópticas for two years.
Michael explains: ‘I wanted a change in career and knew of the Specsavers brand so decided to apply. Thanks to this job I have discovered a love for the world of optics. I am very happy to be a qualified optical assistant and am excited to continue my studies to become a dispensing optician.’
Lisa, Michael and the rest of the team are committed to helping the community in Guardamar protect their vision and identify any health issues which may damage the eyes and lead to sight loss.
